The Lovereading4Kids comment

Dad's job is so dull! But what if, instead of going to boring meetings, Dad was out sailing the seven seas, defeating dragons or speeding through outer-space? A laugh-out-loud a tale from the author and illustrator of The Mummy Shop.


Just the Job for Dad by Abie Longstaff

From a pirate ship to an international space station, two siblings search high and low to find just the job for Dad. But perhaps the perfect job is closer than they realise...

A perfect gift for Father's Day, includes a 'Best Dad' certificate.
