Summary

The night Dad had a few cheeky ones after work, forgot the milk and tripped over the rubbish, Mum called him A Wild Thing and left him to it for the rest of the evening. . . .

In this hilarious, touching homage to Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are, a ‘tired and emotional’ dad finds himself drifting off to the place where the Wild Dads went. ‘Now party like real men!’ he said. And there was never a manliness like it. In a riot of headbanging, air guitar and table football he finds himself at the centre of a great escape, but pretty soon he begins to miss the place he left behind…

Lovingly illustrated by the award-winning Sholto Walker, this little book is the perfect gift for new dads – or any parent who’s ever wanted to run away from it all.
