Book Review: My Dad Still Thinks He's Funny by Katrina Germein - Reviewed by RomiS (27 Aug 2014)
My dad says, ''I've told you fifty million times, don't exaggerate.''
Every kid will think this book is about their dad, and I'm sure their dads will agree! The sequel to My Dad Thinks He's Funny, the popular My Dad STILL Thinks He's Funny is jam-packed with more hilarious dad jokes that we know and love all too well!
Rather than the traditional story-type format, Katrina Germein has gone for a non-conventional, more of a list-of-events-type style where each spread illustrates another dad joke from the boy's point of view.
Including some classics, like, I say, ''What's the time?'' and Dad says, ''Time to get a watch.'' and, Mum tells me I get my brains from her. Days says, ''I've still got mine.'' And I was amused when I read one of my dad's favourites, I say I feel like a milkshake and Dad says, ''You don't look like one.''
And in a humorous turn of events, I love the ending when we discover who else thinks he's funny! Those 'dad jokes' have definately rubbed off on somebody, or maybe all of us, intentional or not.
The illustrations by Tom Jellett perfectly suit the comical, quirky style of the book. With a mix of pencil sketched outlines and full colour images, from close ups to full frame shots, and a clever use of background textures and patterns. Jellett has made clear in his pictures what Germein has intended, which enables kids to never miss the pun.
A fun, entertaining book that's sure to make you giggle, My Dad STILL Thinks He's Funny is perfect for the whole family.
