The ideal gift book for anyone whose dad makes them laugh or roll their eyes.
When his son says "I m hungry," Dad says, "Hello, Hungry. Pleased to meet you." Before slicing a cake for dessert, Dad announces, "There's my piece. What's everybody else having?" Tell Dad your foot hurts? "No problem. You ve got another." How is he feeling? "With my hands." So when nothing's up but the sky, or when jumping in the shower sounds dangerous, it may be a good time to share this book with someone who doesn t need sugar because, well, they re sweet enough already.
