The Lovereading4Kids comment

A warm and comforting story that’s perfect for a toddler to give to their dad, particularly for Father’s Day. Dad’s wonderful tales of where he’s been, from flying round the world in a motorised bed to working as a top secret spy, bring out all the love and admiration that father and child could ever have for each other. Fabulous. This title is from the same author that created the magical book The Tickle Tree!.

Synopsis

My Dad! by Chae Strathie

Tall tales trip off Dad's tongue as he gets carried away with his own imagination. But Dad always knows when to stop with the stories and tell the truth. A warm and comforting story.

About the Author

Chae Strathie

Chae Stratie was born 32 years ago in Kirkcaldy, Scotland, when he was very small. Since then he has grown a great deal, to the extent that nowadays he is considerably bigger than a baby.

He was educated in a secret underwater laboratory built by the Government, before escaping in a huge bubble at the age of 18. After that he embarked on a series of ill-fated schemes designed to win friends and impress girls. The most notable of these disastrous outings was his attempt to reach the South Pole on a £2.99 plastic sledge pulled by a team of cats.

Chae is a world famous horse-whisperer, weasel-murmerer and bee-shouter and is the creator of all the most successful Broadway musicals since 1982.

Chae Strathie is prone to flights of fancy.

Chae started writing silly stuff for children in his 20’s and has now amassed a sprawling collection of literally three or four picture book stories, two of which have been published by those nice people at Meadowside.

He works as a sub-editor for a national newspaper based in Dundee and lives in a quiet fishing village in Fife with his wife Corinna, daughter Eilidh, three cats, a goldfish and numerous uninvited spiders. Eilidh wants some giant land snails, but if she thinks she’s bringing them into the house she’s got another thing coming.

His greatest claim to fame is once appearing in an episode of Channel 4’s Location, Location, Location. They didn’t find him a house.

He dreams of one day going to Great Yarmouth.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
