My Dad Is Big and Strong, but . . .
by Coralie Saudo
illustration by Kris Di Giacomo
In a fine twist on the nightly challenge of getting a child to bed, this story turns that theme on its head (one with a jaunty black hat.) It brings out every classic stall tactic of a reluctant child. But his time around, it's Dad that's dragging his feet! Di Giacomo's detailed illustrations add the perfect touch of humor to Saudo's tale. With deftly placed line work, she creates expressions in all her characters, even the dog.
