The Lovereading4Kids comment
In a nutshell; a dad's gotta do... The title of this book will be irresistible to young readers and the story, a mix of comedy and family drama, won't disappoint them. Nelson's dad turns from frustrated estate agent to evangelical tree-hugger overnight when Nelson's mum leaves them. He sells the house, and Nelson's beloved X-box too and moves them to middle-of-nowhere Norfolk. When his obsession with a TV survivalist gets out of hand Nelson determines to get Mum home and sets up a blog to raise the money he'll need. It takes off and no wonder when his dad becomes the unintended star. There are lots of funny scenes, but readers will understand too Nelson's worries for his dad and see how much he and his little sister need their mum.
Recommended for readers of Frank Cottrell Boyce and David Solomons who also write comedy stories based in family life and love. ~ Andrea Reece

My Embarrassing Dad's Gone Viral! by Ben Davis
My Dad - the King of Cringe! What's a boy to do when his mum disappears, his dad moves him and his sister to the middle of nowhere, and his life takes a very swift downward turn ...secretly launch his dad on the internet as the Next Big Thing, of course! Hi guys! I bet every one of you knows what it's like to have an embarrassing parent - right? I bet they've done something so cringey that you wanted the ground to open up and swallow you whole. But let me tell you, my friend, NOBODY has a dad like mine. He takes embarrassing to a whole new level. If embarrassing was an Olympic sport, my dad would have, like, a gazillion gold medals.
This hilarious story will have instant appeal to a YouTube-watching generation and is told through a series of vlogs. Combining Ben Davis's brilliantly-funny voice and Mike Lowery's amazingly-amazing illustrations is sure to make this a hit with readers everywhere. After all, everyone knows what it's like to have an embarrassing parent, don't they?
