A fun, rhyming book about a little girl who searches for her dad; the ‘one for me.’
Published 2009. New Frontier Publishing. Illustrated by Chantal Stewart.
‘This is a wonderful rhyming picture book, with a humorous plot and rhythmical text which is especially fun when read aloud. Adults and children alike will love the silliness of both the problem and the solution, and the repeated refrain of ‘atishoo’ will encourage youngsters to join in. The illustrations are also humorous, with the sandy desert colours splashed with highlights in blues, purples and greens. Loads of fun.’
‘The most important thing about a rhyming picture book is that it rhymes well. Thankfully, I Spy Dad! rhymes very well. Janeen Brian has written a beautiful story about a little girl wondering where her dad is.’
‘I spy Dad! is a picture book that should be sitting on every bookshelf at kinder, the library and definitely at home.’
