Based on nine years and 250,000 words of newspaper columns, The ‘Best Dad I Can Be' series hilariously charts everyday life in an ordinary family.
“Mark Richards humorously (extremely humorously!) chronicles life with his children. Each short column takes a snapshot of normal life be it computer games, expensive consoles, football, the cat, Christmas or just life in general. You won't regret buying this book... ever! Give it as a gift, use it as a pick me up or leave it in your will to the kids (just to remind them what they were like!)”
This is the sample book – 27 of the most popular columns covering the years from 2003 to 2012 and tackling the essential questions all parents have to face:
What do you do when your seven year old is arrested as a terrorist?
How do you react the first time your teenage son comes home drunk?
And how do you explain to a 16 year old girl who’s heavily into rock n’ roll that one day she’ll be just as heavily into growing her own vegetables?
“Genius, Mark. Thank you for this - it has so brightened my day.”
Over the next 12 months all nine books in the series will be published on the Kindle. If you want to laugh out loud at the everyday trivialities of family life – or you need to be reassured that you’re not the only parent hiding chocolate biscuits in the tumble dryer – then the ‘Best Dad I Can Be’ series is exactly what you’ve been waiting for.
“This book is quite simply one of the funniest I have ever read.”
