A lovely picture book spot on for Father’s day from the man behind ‘Bob the Builder’ Curtis Jobling. Sophie and Sue are bragging about how brilliant their Dad’s are – while Molly just listens.

Synopsis

My Daddy by Curtis Jobling

Celebrate the brilliance of Dads in a humorous picture book perfect for Father's Day. Sophie and Sue and Molly like to go to the park. They swing and they talk, and they talk and they swing but they can't always agree. Sophie and Sue boast about their daddies. Each one is sure that hers is the best in the whole wide world. Sophie's daddy always wins everything. But Sue's daddy isn't ever afraid. The boasts get bigger and bigger! My daddy's a Super Hero! My daddy's a Super Dooper hero! My daddy's Father Christmas!! But Molly is very quiet - I wonder what her daddy does! This is a cheerful look at friendly rivalry and the imaginative powers of children.

About the Author

Curtis Jobling

The designer of worldwide hit children's television show 'Bob the Builder' and the author/illustrator of numerous children’s books, Curtis Jobling lives with his family in Cheshire.

Early work on Aardman Animation’s 'Wallace & Gromit' and Tim Burton’s 'Mars Attacks' led to him picking up his crayons in 1997 to design the BAFTA winning Bob. The animated series of 'Frankenstein’s Cat', based upon Curtis’s book of the same name, picked up the Pulcinella award for Best Children's Show at the 2008 International Cartoons On The Bay festival in Salerno, Italy. His noisy new preschool show, 'Raa Raa', can be seen on CBeebies, while his original paintings and prints sell in galleries the world over. Although perhaps best known for his work in TV and picture books, Curtis’s other love has always been horror and fantasy for an older audience.

Watch Curtis show you how to draw Bob the Builder - and then transform him into a werewolf - in the video below:

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
