The Dictionary of Dads

The Dictionary of Dads

Justin Coe

illustrated by Steve Wells

He’s my Abracadabra dad

He wows me with his wizardry

Slips secrets up his sleeve

To magic away misery

Look out for Big Bad Dad and Caveman Dad, laugh at Daddy Disaster and Donkey Dad, feel sorry for Faraway Dad and look forward to Homecoming Dad. Then raise a cheer for Mum-Dad!

There are more than fifty different dads in The Dictionary of Dads. Find your favourite – but watch out for Exploding Dad!


This is a brilliant and funny debut collection from a poet who performs his work in schools and theatres across the UK, with witty illustrations by Steve Wells.
