From the Publisher:

Enormous ears, hundreds of teeth, spikey whiskers, dozens of huge feet ‹ this is a child¹s view of his Dad ‹ or is it his Dad? That¹s My Dad won Ralph Steadman international acclaim with the Critici in Erba Prize, judged by a particularly demanding jury ‹ children aged six to nine. This is what they said: ³We love this book! It¹s fun, it¹s crazy!² Ralph Steadman is one of Britain¹s most well-known artists; he has also achieved prominence as an illustrator of both adult and children¹s books, including The Grapes of Ralph, America, little.com, and No Room to Swing a Cat.

From Publishers Weekly:

Dear Old DadFirst published in Great Britain in 1986, That's My Dad by Ralph Steadman follows a funny description of a father from a child's vantage point. "That's my dad," begins the narrative. But, when questioned, the narrator describes characteristics that couldn't possibly belong to dear old Dad ("A fluffy tail?/ A trunk?"). The final portrait, combining all the silly features, will leave kids laughing and set their own imaginations spinning.
