Daddy, Don't Let Go!

By Jeanne Willis
Illustrated by Tony Ross

A gorgeous father-daughter story about learning to ride a bike... and about watching your little one grow up. A perfect Father's Day read.

When a little girl is learning to ride her bike with her dad, she has all the usual trouble with balancing and control - but when all of a sudden she is speeding down the path shouting: 'You can let go now!', Daddy sees his daughter growing up fast, and he wonders whether she will really come back to him. 'Full of breezy exhilaration.' SUNDAY TIMES
