Molly and Her Dad (Neal Porter Books)
Synopses & Reviews
MOLLY TALKS ABOUT HER DAD CONSTANTLY.
Hes a famous artist! Hes been to space! He can make anything!
But what she doesnt tell her classmates is that all she really knows about her dad is what he looks like in photographs. When Molly finally meets her father for the first time, shes disappointed that hes nothing like the tall tales she invented. What will her classmates say when she brings him for show-and-tell? But Mollys dad has some tricks up his sleeve, and he turns out to be better than an astronaut or an artist. Hes an amazing storyteller—just like Molly. Thompsons expressive lines dance with Ormerods energetic characters in this poignant tale of parent and child.
Molly and Her Dad is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
