My Daddy is a Silly Monkey

Publisher: Otter-Barry Books

Daddy does everything for his little girl: makes her breakfast and lunch, brushes her hair, entertains her, and takes her to school and to go swimming. The happy little girl imagines her daddy as a different animal each time; a splashy whale at the swimming pool, a scratchy bear when he wakes up, a ravenous tiger when he eats. But, after a full day, he's just a lovely, paint-spattered, tiger-ear-wearing aproned daddy, ready for bed!

This warm and affectionate depiction of a day in the life of a single dad and his daughter is lovingly rendered in lots of splashy detail by Carol Thompson. The playful text works well with the energetic illustration; Dad is cheerful, fun and realistically exhausted by the end of the day, and the little girl is, again, authentically depicted as a whirlwind of activity.
