Synopsis

Rescuing Dad by Pete Johnson

Joe and Claire can see why Mum chucked Dad out. He looks a mess, he can't cook and he's useless around the house. Something must be done: they're the only ones who can help transform him into 'Dad Mark Two'. And when they unveil this new, improved dad, Mum will be so impressed she'll take him back on the spot! But then disaster strikes - Mum starts seeing the slimy and creepy Roger. And Joe and Claire's plans take an unexpected turn - with hilarious results.

Reviews

Pete Johnson's novel is funny and light but the humour disguises real emotional truth and depth ... It offers some very funny and pertinent home truths for parents too Guardian A funny, positive and engaging exploration of a modern dilemma from a sure-footed storyteller Carousel Children are often the victims when a marriage falters or fails and in Rescuing Dad, Pete Johnson illuminates this distressing reality with the perception humour which is a trademark of his work ... The events of Joe's birthday are as fine a piece of slapstick comedy as I have read Books for Keeps Pete Johnson has succeeded in presenting a sensitive subject in a light-hearted way without detracting from its seriousness Children's Books in Ireland

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