I might be in love with David Melling.
Just in time for Father’s Day we have the re-issued Just Like My Daddy. We meet a young lion cub who rather admires his fierce and clever lion daddy. The adult reader can tell daddy is not perfect, and maybe the little lion can too. I don’t know.
But he definitely loves his dad. And so does all his friends.
This picture book shows you a new side to the powerful lion image. But a dad’s a dad, anyway.
And if you want more, I give you ducks. They are also by David Melling, and Colour with Splosh! is a lovely and fun take on colours and rhymes, with the most adorable ducks.
And one rabbit.
There is just something about David’s style…
