A Perfect Fathers Day
Publisher: Sandpiper (March 22, 1993)
Susie offers to take Dad out to eat for “a perfect Father’s Day” (“May I drive?,” Dad asks), then to the duck pond (“You like to feed the ducks, don’t you, Dad?”), then to the park (“Do you like the monkey bars?”). Clearly the perfect Father’s Day requires the perfect father, and Susie’s parent quite literally takes the cake. Meddaugh’s balloon-colored cartoons are perfectly tuned to the spirit of the day. With more spontaneity than most made-to-order picture books, this is an engaging family portrait and a winning tribute to “Dad.” –Marcia Hupp, Mamaroneck Public Library, NY
