Lovingly illustrated by the award-winning Sholto Walker, this little book is the perfect gift for new dads – or any parent who's ever wanted to run away from it all.

The night Dad had a few cheeky ones after work, forgot the milk and tripped over the rubbish, Mum called him A Wild Thing and said "Don't mind me!" and spent the rest of the night on the phone . . .


In this hilarious, touching homage to Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, a tired and emotional dad finds himself drifting off to the place where the Wild Dads went. 'Now PARTYYYYYYYYYY!' he said. In a riot of headbanging, air guitar and table football he finds himself at the centre of a great escape, but pretty soon he begins to miss the place he left behind . . .

Author bio:

Katie Blackburn is the author of Where the Wild Mums Are, a humorous homage to the children's bestseller Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Katie lives in London with her husband and young child. Katie has also written a picture book that helps children to fall asleep, Dozy Bear and the Secret of Sleep which has received rave reviews from C4's Three Day Nanny, Kathryn Mewes and a clinical hypnotherapist. This is her third book. Sholto Walker is based in a village near Bath. Sholto trained to be a painter, but his talent for drawing led him into illustration. He's happiest when he can take an idea and turn it into a picture. Cycling is one of Sholto's main passions and for a while he even thought of becoming a professional.
