Just Like My Dad

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

A little lion cub loves and respects his dad. He wants to grow up to be just like him, with sharp teeth, long nails and a swishy tail.

His dad teaches him all sorts of lion skills and he shows him how to be brave. He plays games with him and they lie around lazily enjoying each other's company.

The pictures tell a slightly different story from the text. In the illustrations Dad's many abilities don't prove quite as exceptional as they are seen through the eyes of his admiring son. This is a lively, humorous picture book, ideal for children and their fathers to share together.
