I Want My Dad!

From the Series Little Princess

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 3   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

The Little Princess is jealous of her friends—they all have dads who can do amazing things. The Cook bakes incredible cakes; the King always burns his. The Gardener takes his daughter on adventure-walks through the forest; the King gets lost on his way to bed. The Maid can teach the Little Princess to bake and she can take her for a walk, but will it be the same without her dad?

Midwest Book Review

Two fine new picture book offerings from this press are highly recommended picks for picture book readers looking for different entertainment. Young dinosaur lovers will relish Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross’s The T-Rex Who Lost His Specs! (9781541514560, $17.99), a fun story of a poor blind dinosaur who “can’t tell toast from toasted slippers or a towel from an owl” without them. As he looks, his friends help in this fun, rollicking rhyme of discovery. Tony Ross also writes I Want My Dad! (9781541514539, $17.99), which joins others in his Little Princess series about a girl who is proud of her father, the King, who is better than all other dads…for the most part. As her father’s faults grow, his little princess learns a lesson in love in this fun story of a stubborn little girl’s love for her father.

Publishers Weekly

“Ross’s idiosyncratic royals and distinctive pencil and watercolor art relay the message that there’s no father like one’s very own.”—Publishers Weekly
