Summary: This is the story about how a dad tries to distract his daughter when she has hurt herself or feels ill. These are all real moments.
Written by Andrew Rogerson, this book is for anyone who enjoys reading time with their children. It especially highlights the unique relationship between a father and his daughter and shows how acting silly can sometimes distract and defuse a tricky situation.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Christopher Dodd who has a unique perspective because he has known the author for many years and has seen Poppy grow up from being a toddler. The illustrations offer an insight into the world of books and well-known children’s characters providing a wonderful point of discussion between parent and child.
Andrew is 52 and lives near Liverpool with his wife and family. He has always loved theatre and music and runs a youth theatre for The Arts Project based in Widnes, Cheshire. He sometimes plays double bass in a band called The Chimps. His youngest daughter is the subject of the books in the Poppy and Dad series of books.
