Synopsis

The Best Bit of Daddy's Day by Claire Alexander

A heartwarming father/son story with a familiar school setting - the perfect gift for Father's Day. Bertie wants to drive trucks and diggers, just like his daddy. But today there's a special surprise waiting for him at school that might mean that Bertie's day and Daddy's day won't be so different . . . A touching story about a very special bond with gorgeous watercolour artwork from Claire Alexander, winner of the Schneider Family Book Award and the Paterson Prize. An exquisitely painted bedtime book for boys or girls, this is an adorable follow-up to Claire's earlier picture books, Millie Shares and Monkey and the Little One. Claire Alexander moved to London in 1995. She won the US Paterson Prize in 2009 and 2013 and the Shneider Family Book Award in the same year for her book Back to Front and Upside Down. She teaches her own course on writing and illustrating picture books and lives in Crouch End, North London with her partner and their two little girls.
