My Dad Thinks He's Funny

By Katrina Germein
Illustrated by Tom Jellett

A book for anyone whose dad has made them laugh – or cringe!

My dad doesn't like babysitting. He says no one should sit on babies. My dad doesn't eat seafood. He says there's something fishy about it. My dad doesn't lie in bed. He says you should always tell the truth. My dad thinks he's funny.
