Molly doesn’t know her dad: he ‘lives a whole plane ride away’. But she loves to tell stories about him, and her mum says she looks just like him. At school, when her friends’ dads visit and display their various talents, Molly claims her dad can do everything they can. But when he turns up to look after her for a week, she finds the exuberant, larger-than-life Italian a bit embarrassing and uncomfortable. Her friends at school have no such problem with him. He is a remarkable storyteller, and they are enthralled. Molly learns to love her noisy, brash dad, to accept him as he is, and to be proud to be like him. The illustrations are as brash as dad, messy and lively and full of smudges and movement – speech bubbles too. Life with dad will never be boring; nor will this splendid picture book.
