Review: Our D.I.Y. Dad

It's Dad's special day! And what does he love to do most of all? Why, D.I.Y, of course.

The kids are up early, A.S.A.P - and off to the hardware store, but not before Mum whips up some snags on the B.B.Q.

At Dad's favourite place in the world, they work out a 12-step plan, as easy as A.B.C. - lots of planks and nails and supplies to make a very special creation.

What could it be?

Well, you'll just have to read the book to find out!

Variant typography and a consistently charming play on words make this a fun and colourful book for little ones. Culic's illustrations are vibrant and the large format book is perfect for keeping younger kids engaged.

Great fun for Father's Day - and for dropping a few D.I.Y. hints to Dad!
