Be glad your dad is not a dog, because he would lick your face to say hello!
Most of the time, you're glad your dad is your dad, until he gets grouchy, bossy, or just totally gross. Then you wish you could swap him for something else. But be careful what you wish for, because it could be way worse....

In this silly what-if story, kids will roar with laughter at the misadventures of a monkey dad, an alligator dad, a whale dad, and even a unicorn dad! But nothing can replace the dads who love them more than anything in the whole wide world.

Be sure to check out the fun facts about the animals in the story in the back of the book!

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1—Usually children are happy with their dads, except for "when he is grouchy, bossy or totally gross." Two children imagine their father as different animals, all with bad results. If your dad were a dog, he would lick your face. If he were a tortoise, everything would take way too long. A monkey dad would feed you insects. If he were a unicorn, no one would believe in him. Iguanas, skunks, dung beetles, and whales would all make terrible fathers for human children. The list of alternative father animals goes on, with similarly unappealing outcomes. The moral is that though kids may sometimes wish their dads were different, they should be happy with the parents they have. The book concludes with fun animal facts for each featured creature. The silly cartoon illustrations were digitally created using Photoshop. VERDICT This playful celebration of dads is perfect for storytime or one-on-one reading.—Laura Hunter, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
