Synopsis

Sally’s dad is actually quite a good dad, Sally thinks. There’s just one thing, really: he sometimes makes her so incredibly embarrassed. That includes the times when he plays football with the boys at the after-school club, when he says strange things in front of her classmates and when he calls Sally’s friend, Svend, her boyfriend. One day Sally really gets enough and decides to teach her dad a lesson, once and for all.

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)
