I Want My Daddy! by Tracey Corderoy

Some days we just need our daddies. And Arthur REALLY needs his daddy today. His play castle is all wrong, he bumps leg chasing baddies out of his kingdom and there's a monster in his moat! Nothing is going right for this little knight. There's only one thing for it: I want my Daddy, he cries.


Alison Edgson's cute and cuddly illustrations put extra heart and soul into Corderoy's enchanting tale of Arthur and his quick-thinking dad. There is fun on every page and a big, Father's Day helping of man-sized warmth and wisdom. Lancashire Evening Post A lovely present for Fathers
