Praise For Daddy Depot…
"In this tongue-in-cheek story, an embarrassed girl named Lizzie drags her father to the Daddy Depot to check out alternatives ... The selections at the store include a Rocker Dad surrounded by bodyguards and a Chef Dad who prepares mashed liver and sardines. No surprise, Lizzie comes to realize that the perfect father for her is the goofy, football-watching model she already has. Snair’s punchy ink-and-digital artwork echoes Stiefel’s sentiment, offering visual reminders of how this father and daughter are a perfect match."--Publishers Weekly
"This colorful, humorous tale is sure to be a read-aloud hit."--School Library Journal
"While many kids might dream of trading in their parents (or vice versa!), this charming book shows that the grass isn’t always greener in the other backyard. Perfect for snuggling up with before bedtime, or after a fight about attention, DADDY DEPOT delivers humor and sweetness in spades. Highly recommended."--The Children's Book Review
