A celebration of the best kind of dad: the kind that's willing to join in the fun.
A gang of mythical creatures is roaming around a magical land having a great time, until Bigfoot gets his foot stuck in a tree trunk and Unicorn gets her horn impaled on a table and Robot's saw-arm gets rusted into position. But have no fear! Dad is there to fix things--even when a Sneaky Flying Alligator Pirate steals the Fairy Queen Ballerina Doctor's wand.
A hilarious story about imagination, play and the best parts about being a dad.
"It's great being a unicorn," boasts a pink specimen with a rainbow horn. "Who wouldn't want to be a unicorn?" Bigfoot and a robot make similar claims, but each creature runs into a snag ("What's not to like about being a robot? Rain, that's what!"), requiring intervention. After these beings and others are revealed to be a crew of kids playing in the yard, a resourceful father steps in to save the day. Perry's wide-eyed, brightly colored fantasy creations wonderfully evoke a pretend-play world where anything can happen but plenty still goes awry, and Bar-el's (Audrey ) deadpan narrative delivers laughs on every page.
