Looking for a Father’s Day gift with a difference? We’re proud to be publishing the gorgeous Daddy Long Legs written by Nadine Brun-Cosme and illustrated by Aurélie Guillerey.

One morning Matty's old green car won’t start, and when Daddy drops him off at nursery Matty’s worried. What if the car is broken and Dad won’t be able to pick Matty up? Dad offers up a range of ever more fantastical solutions – he’ll borrow the neighbour's tractor, get a lift from Matty’s teddy bear, or even fly to nursery on the back of a dragon!
Finally, if all else fails, Dad will take to his own two feet – which will never be too tired to collect Matty.

Children will love the fabulously inventive modes of transport and Aurélie Guillerey’s bright, distinctive artwork. If you’re looking for a warm, stylish and utterly comforting tribute to dads everywhere, then look no further than Daddy Long Legs.
