The car had trouble starting this morning. It gets Matty to nursery, but what if later it won't start at all... how will Dad pick him up? Matty is very worried.

But Dad soon puts Matty's fears to rest with a series of increasingly imaginative suggestions for alternative modes of transport - from a tractor to a dragon, a polar bear to a rowing boat. But, if all else fails, he'll come on foot... because to come and pick up Matty, Dad's legs will never be too tired.

Daddy Long Legs is a joyous book with bright, fresh and funny artwork, full of retro charm. With its warm, reassuring feel and the adorably drawn relationship between a father and his child, this makes the perfect book for Father's Day and beyond.
