About the Author:

Tony Bradman was a pop music journalist before becoming a children's book writer and reviewer in 1980. He has written fiction, poetry, and edited a number of highly successful anthologies. He also compiled The Kingfisher Treasury of Pirate Stories.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up–Writers from the United States, Great Britain, and Australia are represented in this collection; interestingly, all have similar stories to tell. The title story is written from the point of view of an adolescent whose divorced dad plays with a band, Bucket of Snot, and is seldom there for his son. The selections cover myriad complex paternal dynamics including a devoted dad, a workaholic, a homosexual, a deceased father, and one from the future. The stories are funny, truthful, poignant, and bittersweet. Each protagonist has specific needs but the common thread is that each boy wants to spend more time with his father. This book gives teens a realistic picture of the variety of father/son relationships.–Sharon Morrison, Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Durant, OK
