Synopsis

One morning, Sally is feeling under the weather and does not feel like going to school. Dad checks her over and concludes that it will probably pass during the day. She doesn’t have a temperature and she is not nearly as bad of as when he was a boy and went to school despite his arm having fallen off.

When Sally returns from school later that day, disaster has struck: Dad has caught the terrible man flu… Sally needs to get the soft blanket and scoot to the corner shop for sweets – while Dad writes his will…

Reviews

"Hugely entertaining " – (Information)

"Outspoken, politically incorrect and free from raised fingers and spelt buns" – (Litteratursiden)

"We didn't have any doubts about this series. We knew right away that it would be perfect for the Polish market, though we didn't expect such great success. We have trouble seeing the series as picture books, not because of the amount of text, but the format and the target reader, because it's directed at a double reader: at kids that are a bit older than the usual picture book readers and at their parents (as in the case of Shrek). I'm not sure who has more fun reading these books: parents or children?" – Katarzyna Biegańska (Polish editor at Dwukropek)
