Synopsis:

My dad's job sure sounds like a lot of fun. He's part of a team. He fights off raiders. And sometimes he even gets to ride on a bull.

But what if dad's job isn't as much fun as it sounds?

There's only one way to be sure....And that's to merge the talents of an enterprising author -- in this case, Peter Glassman -- and an innovative illustrator -- like Timothy Bush -- in a picture book that's guaranteed to give you the best return for the buck and still not break the bank.

Review: What happens when Dad walks out the door every morning with his briefcase? What mysterious place does he go to do mysterious things? When he comes home Dad talks about his great team (can he really play sports at work?) and fighting hostile takeovers. The boy narrator's imagination goes wild as he pictures his dad (wearing a tie) wielding a giant sword to defend a fortress. And what exactly happened in the grocery store? "On Wednesday, Dad was really tired. He told Mom that the market was up and down and that the bulls and bears were giving everyone a wild ride." His sister, brother, and mother all assure him that Dad isn't talking about real bulls and bears, raiders, and teams. Determined to find out for himself, the son asks his dad if he can go to work with him. Will he be disappointed to discover that it's not at all what he pictured? Adults may be more amused than children will by this lighthearted look at business lingo (glossary in the back!). Still, renowned bookseller Peter Glassman's clever, well-paced story communicates the idea that work can and should be fun and Timothy Bush's comical illustrations convey a son's vivid imaginings with flair to spare. (Ages 7 and older) --Karin Snelson
