Description

Perfect for Father's Day and all year round, here is the breakout book celebrating all the silliness and sweetness that a dad can share with a child, illustrated by bestselling and award-winning artist Dan Santat! Because I'm your dad, you can have spaghetti for breakfast, French toast for dinner, and rocky road ice cream in the bathtub! In a text that's both playful and loving, a father expresses his hopes and dreams for a one-of-a-kind relationship with his child. The book's ending, a moving tribute to the author's father--legendary rock star Frank Zappa--guarantees intergenerational appeal, and award-winning artist Dan Santat (The Adventures of Beekle) brings the fun and endearing scenes to life with whimsical monster characters. Because I'm your dad, I will do all of these things for you and more . . .because that's what my dad did for me.

Review quote

"A rowdy catalogue of Dad moments gets enacted by a creature who resembles a green '60s-era Nauga monster and his purple (gender-neutral) offspring, in this picture book from the son of the late Frank Zappa (and a father himself).... Throughout, Zappa and Santat maintain an entertaining balance between sweet and goofy, protective and raucous."--Publishers Weekly
