Dave Hackett, Time for Adventure, Daddy, University of Queensland Press, August 2020, 32 pp., RRP $24.99 (hbk), ISBN 9780702262852
One very insistent little girl persuades her father to take her on an adventure. Not only is Daddy highly domesticated (no mention of Mummy) but when out in the bush, he often resembles a somewhat demanding child – being tired, hungry, and collecting too many souvenirs that he is not keen to carry. The role reversal is amusing and is perfectly captured in the illustrations. This is one of a series about Daddy and also the 22nd book by this experienced author illustrator. It is well designed with large typeface and not too much text. Ages 3-6.
