Give Me Back My Dad! by Robert Munsch illustrated by Michel Martchenko
This – as with most of our Robert Munsch collection – is another Scholastic find. There was a little mix-up when Aiden brought this order home from school as this particular book was missing. His teacher had forgotten to add it to all of the other books in his order. When we finally got it, Liam and I had to read it right away (though not quite as right away as Chicken Cheeks).
It’s typical Munsch complete with silly problems, repetition, and a happy ending. The illustrations add to the humour perfectly, proving yet again that Munsch and Martchenko make a great team.
Just remember, if you ever go ice fishing in the best spot of the world, the fish are smart (very smart) and NEVER touch anything that they throw up out of the hole.
