I Want My Daddy! By Tracy Corderoy and Alison Edgson


Arthur was having a bad day. His castle kept tumbling down.
"Too wibbly," Arthur frowned. "Too wobbly!"
He picked up Huffity and stomped away. "I want my daddy!" he grumbled.

Summary From Little Tiger Press
Published in May 2015

Some days we just need our daddies. And Arthur REALLY needs his daddy today. His play castle is all wrong, he bumps his leg chasing baddies out of his kingdom and there's a monster in his moat! Nothing is going right for this little knight. There's only one thing for it: "I want my Daddy," he cries. 
Fans of Tracey Corderoy's I Want My Mummy! will adore this sweet tale of Arthur and his special dad. With warm and reassuring illustrations and a playful text, this picture book will cheer up any little knight having a bad day. The perfect gift for Father's Day - or any day when only Daddy will do.

This is another cute picture book from Little Tiger Press. Arthur, a young mouse, wants to play knights but he needs help to fix his wobbly cardboard castle. Daddy comes to the rescue, of course, and he helps when Arthur hurts his leg, too. Then they have lots of fun together at the park, playing on Arthur's favourite castle and fishing in the 'moat'. Finally, Daddy gets a well-deserved reward at the end of a fun-packed day.
Alison Edgson's illustrations are detailed and colourful and, together with the fairly simple and straightforward text, they make Arthur's 'let's pretend' play easy to understand for children of about two and over. It's definitely a book that special dads will want to share with their children.
