Author(s): Scott Tulloch
Willy is a fairly average small boy, who lives at home with his Mum and Dad. While Mum is very sensible and holds a very responsible job, Willy's Dad is not quite normal. His boundless enthusiasm is a pain in Willy's butt, and poor Willy is getting used to being embarrassed in front of all the other children at kindergarten. But when Willy's Mum goes away on a business trip, leaving his father to look after Willy, it's not long before Dad is out of control. In a heart-warming and delightfully comic story of role reversal, it soon becomes apparent that Wee Willy is one very cool little toddler, and his Dad is the one that needs looking after. But despite the frustrations and embarrassment, there's really no-ne quite like Dad, and the love and strong bond between Willy and his bumbling but well-meaning father provides a poignant counterpoint to the boisterous and comid illustrations. A charming and endearing first book which is fun for Dads and children to share. First published August 2007
