Amazing Daddy by Rachel Bright
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

An unashamed celebration of the hundreds of things that make dads amazing this is a funny, tender and even poignant picture book. Little Panda lists the ways he loves his daddy, and the whys. They’re the things that all dads do, sharing stories, rough and tumble play, piggybacks and having fun. Rachel Bright’s pictures and text will make this feel personal for each pair of readers, and adds some singular lines that make this feel extra special: ‘I’d like to be like Daddy, when I’m big and old one day, but the oldness that my daddy has is VERY far away’. This will be a hit on Father’s Day and every day thereafter. ~ Andrea Reece

She lives on a farm near the seaside, which she shares with her family, their dog Elvis and a cockerel called Herman.

She’s done zillions of different jobs before becoming an author and illustrator, including owning a landscape gardening business, being a life-guard and a TV extra (she was once taken hostage by Daleks in 'Dr.Who'). Her first proper boss was Samantha Cameron, now of No.10 Downing St.
