Don't Puke on Your Dad: A Year in the Life of a New Father
Taking the words out of every father's mouth, Toby Morris' Don't Puke on Your Dad is a hilarious and heart-warming first-hand account of the first year of parenthood. Featuring his charming illustrations, and penned in his own quirky hand, this innovative graphic novel invites the reader to share in Morris' journey through baby Max's tumultuous first year of life. Spanning the delighted but discombobulated days following his birth right through to the sentimental celebration of his first birthday, the illustrations provide an honest and amusing look at the extreme highs and lows of parenthood. The book speaks to the uncertainty that many fathers feel with regards to parenting, and explores previously un-aired topics, such as 'manly' baby talk, and pub-toilet nappy changes. An amusing read, whether casually or cover-to-cover, Don't Puke on Your Dad makes the perfect Father's Day present for anyone who has or is about to embark on the crazy roller-coaster ride that is fatherhood.
