Released in time for Father's Day, this book is a celebration of the vast range of different types of dads. The book opens with an intrepid researcher in the Dads Research Laboratory who ventures into the world to view fathers in their natural habitat. As he discovers, no two dads are the same. They come in all shapes and sizes and with different personalities.

However, the big question remains: what is the best kind of dad? Luckily, this is a question that every child will know the answer to. It is, of course, 'My Dad!'

Illustrator Cathie Glassby has long being recognised in the fashion and music industry. She has been nominated as one of the world's most exciting female illustrators. In Dads, every child will have fun picking out the features their own dad has from the fun and colourful depictions.

Dads: A field guide has been included in the Get Reading! 50 Books You Can't Put Down.
