If I Were You by Richard Hamilton

Book Description

When Dad puts Daisy to bed, he suggests 'If I were you ...I'd go to sleep.' So cheeky Daisy starts thinking about what things would really be like if she and Dad swapped around. She could feed Dad porridge while she ate chocolate fromage frais and wheel him past the neighbours all dressed in pink! Dad thinks it would be great not to have to do any cleaning or cooking but to visit the zoo and play in the park instead!

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » If I were you, I'd snuggle down and go to sleep." A weary father's timeless suggestion becomes the impetus for this imaginative, rib-tickling tale. While a young girl and her dad ponder what it would be like to exchange places, each glamorizes the other's seemingly idyllic life. Their flights of fancy include Dad eating oatmeal for breakfast while his daughter feasts on a sundae, and her cleaning house while Dad lounges on the couch. Ultimately what they discover is that they love to be together, no matter what their roles. Cole's watercolor illustrations are uproariously funny, including wry details that add to the hilarity of the scenarios envisioned by the duo. Readers will giggle over such silly images as that of a grizzled Dad wearing a pink tutu wedged in his daughter's stroller being steered down Main Street. This funny, warmhearted tale is not to be missed. (Picture book. 4-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
