Happy father's day, David! 

Who are you?
David Miller

What do you do? 
I write and illustrate picture books for children.

How many kids do you have?
I have three children and three grandchildren.

What kind of Dad are you?
I was working at home in my studio when my children were growing up so I saw a lot of them each day. Most afternoons after school I would have one or the other just siting and talking with me as I worked. Now I live next door to one of my children and my granddaughters spend time with me in my studio drawing and making things.

What do your kids call you?

My kids call me David.

What do you like most about being a Dad?
Doing things with my children and seeing them being good parents. The best time is when we are all together.

What is your favourite book about Dads?
I love the dads in Bob Graham's books.

Can you tell us the name of your newest book? Will it be good for Dads?Rufus the Numbat, and near the back there is a picture with a lot of people in it and quite a few are my children and their families. Dads will love it.
