When a boy swaps his dad for two goldfish he does not really think through the consequences! Afterall, he is not the only person who can swap stuff. When the boy is told by his mother that he has to get his father back it is not so easily done. It seems that the father has a pretty high value as he has been traded by one child to the next leaving a trail that the son has to follow. Where will it all end?

Review quote

'One of the most stylish picture books for 5+ ... a strange, cathartic, visually original book about a scary prediction that comes true, and is also classy and cool' Sunday Times Books of the Year 'A truly imaginative tale matched by a visual treat of painting, collage and drawing' Independent on Sunday 'A wonderfully bizarre idea to swap your Dad for two goldfish! And wonderfully conveyed here in brilliant words and bright innovative illustrations! For all the family to enjoy!' Carousel Christmas Supplement "I admired the astringent dialogue, the mood of the illustrations...this is a book to make distracted fathers insecure - when they put their papers down" The Observer
