This is a great read aloud to all those children who love playing with their dads. This dad is not always involved in the children's play, but when he is needed, he is there for them. He is also not afraid to join in and play. I definitely will get this book for my son and grandson, it describes their relationship to a T.

When the children are outside playing they are all involved in make believe. There is a bigfoot and a unicorn who both end up in trouble with their foot and horn respecitively stuck in something. The robot with the saw for an arm rusts and the Flying Alligator Pirate shows up and steals the wand from the Fairy Ballerina Doctor. How will the creatures solve their problems? When their ideas fail, Dad is there to help fix things. This is a cute story about imagination and playing as well as celebrating Dads who participate with their children and or not afraid to join in, even if they get tied up or have to dress up. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 177049605X, Hardcover)

A celebration of the best kind of dad: the kind that's willing to join in the fun.

A gang of mythical creatures is roaming around a magical land having a great time, until Bigfoot gets his foot stuck in a tree trunk and Unicorn gets her horn impaled on a table and Robot's saw-arm gets rusted into position. But have no fear! Dad is there to fix things--even when a Sneaky Flying Alligator Pirate steals the Fairy Queen Ballerina Doctor's wand.

A hilarious story about imagination, play and the best parts about being a dad.
