Product Description

Review

A celebration of the father/child relationship. David Melling's approach is affectionate and comic... (The Guardian)

This charming book ... had the whole family in stitches again and again. Enormous fun and a big hit. (Carousel, Issue 23)

Children adore his wacky illustrations and zany sense of humour (Your New Baby)

Praise for David Melling:

'lively illustrations of animals doing joyously batty things - making even our quietest toddler shriek with laughter.'

(Carousel)

Boldly and beautifully drawn (Limited Edition)

Format: Hardcover
This book is a firm favourite in our household, the simple text and delightfully humourous illustrations make it a sure fire hit with our 20 month old daughter and myself. I have read this countless times at bedtime and it never fails to make us laugh.

Although this is a beautifully illustrated book, I was very dissapointed with it's content. Titled "Just Like my Dad" I was under the impression that it would be a flattering book which would be just right for my son who adores his father. Instead it portrays a rather fat, lazy and greedy "dad". Not the image I want to re-enforce in my son!
Sadly the "look inside" feature did not give info on more than the first page so it was not possible to judge the content accurately from it.

This book is very sweet with comical pictures and captions of a lion cub being 'just like my dad' - whether it be that he has spikey hair, a rumbling tummy or lazying around!

I bought this for my husband as a birthday gift from our unborn baby for his birthday and his face lit up at the idea of the night time reads to come with these sorts of books. Although we haven't read it to a child yet, it definitely will keep any father happy and excited about reading it to their child.

This is a great book that had me and my son laughing at the pictures and story! My son loves reading this and pretending to be a lion. The irony in how the lion cub thinks his dad is and what you see as an adult is also entertaining.

I purchased this book for my nephews first birthday. I came across the book in a book store and thought it was cute - it reminded me a lot of my brother in law. It's about a lion cub whose just like his dad, many of the pages focus around the baby lion comparing his spiky hair to his dad (but dads hair is spiky because he's been startled) or his stomach making the same noises (but daddy lion is burping). It's quite cute and really great for a little boy who has a mans man type of dad. Very cute and a funny little way of poking a little fun at family :).

This was a small add on father's day gift from my baby boy, and was a lovely gift and keepsake. My son mostly enjoys chewing the corners!

We were very disappointed from this book. It does not interest my kids, or myself, and is left on the shelf by itself.
