Synopsis

An Away Day by Benedicte Guettier

An Away Day is the new title in the fantastic new The Dad With 10 Children series: a series of charming picture story books about a single father's fun and frantic daily life. Every day, the dad who had 10 children counted 10 little t-shirts, 10 cups on the table, 10 bowls of spaghetti and 10 goodnight kisses...until one day he finally needed a rest! Leaving his 10 children with Grandma, he set off on an 'away day' from counting. But after just 1 peaceful day and 1 quiet night, he discovers that something is definitely missing! In this delightful tale of the often overwhelming days and nights of modern parenthood, An Away Day demonstrates that, however hectic, family life is more fun when it's all for one and one for ten!

Reviews

The sheer looniness of the premise the 10 children are all apparently the same age, and there's no hint of a mom will beguile young and old, and parents will feel Dad's paternal pain and passion with wry amusement. 1 dad + 10 tykes = sublime silliness. Kirkus
