Description
Yes, parents are bossy--but they also have their perks. Discover the best of them in this lively picture book from two Roald Dahl Funny Prize favorites
It might seem like parents spend an awful lot of time telling kids what to do. And, well, that's true But there's so much more to them: Parents are towels for wiping your grime on. They're whirlers and twirlers and tree trunks to climb on. Parents sort out all your messes and muddles. And best of all, parents give cuddles
This funny and affectionate look at all the things parents do is a blast to read aloud.
