"An engaging family portrait and a winning tribute to 'Dad.'" - School Library Journal

Four-year-old Susie gives her dad her idea of the perfect Father's Day: A fast food restaurant for lunch, feeding birds at the park, a ride on the carousel, the swings . . . they even top their day off with balloons! Eve Bunting's tongue-in-cheek story is sure to resonate with the loving, exhausted parents of charming preschoolers. Susan Meddaugh contributes ample subtle humor to the reading experience in the details of her illustrations. This sweet treat of a book, in a new paper-over-board gift edition with foil cover accents, is the perfect story for dads and kids to share on a perfect Father's Day.

Eve Bunting has written more than two hundred books for children, including Scary, Scary Halloween and Little Bear's Little Boat . She lives in Pasadena, California.


Susan Meddaugh has been a designer and art director, but is best known for her Martha Speaks books about a talking dog, and their television versions on PBS. She lives in Sherborn, Massachusetts.
