This story is about a great old childhood wish...swapping a member of your family for something else, something fantastic! A young boy swaps his Dad for two goldfish but his plan doesn't work as he wanted it to because his Mum comes home and tells him off. The story follows the young boy and his younger sister as they try to find their Dad and swap him back.
We thought the idea for the story was clever. We liked the fact that the Dad was continually swapped for something else. It was funny when he kept being swapped for other things and the young boy had to keep walking to try and find him. We also liked the fact that the Dad didn't even notice.
The illustrations linked in strongly with the story. We liked them because of the colours and different styles of drawing. We thought the backgrounds added to the illustrations at the front, making them more detailed.
Our copy of the book came with a CD, which we found great! This really helps younger children with the story. We would recommend this book to other children who are looking for a different type of book to read.
