Description - Where the Wild Dads Went by Katie Blackburn
The night Dad had a few cheeky ones after work, forgot the milk and tripped over the rubbish, Mum called him A Wild Thing and said "Don't mind me!" and spent the rest of the night on the phone ...In this hilarious, touching homage to Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, a tired and emotional dad finds himself drifting off to the place where the Wild Dads went. 'Now PARTYYYYYYYYYY!' he said. In a riot of headbanging, air guitar and table football he finds himself at the centre of a great escape, but pretty soon he begins to miss the place he left behind ...Lovingly illustrated by the award-winning Sholto Walker, this little book is the perfect gift for new dads - or any parent who's ever wanted to run away from it all.
