Mifflin Lowe Dani Torrent

32 pages
Bushel & Peck Books

"Like this child, readers will want to be like this dad: able to dream big and accomplish anything."-Kirkus Reviews

"This creative romp by Lowe follows a father with an apparently boundless capacity for fun, his more levelheaded wife, and their two children..A rollicking celebration of one father's imagination."-Publishers Weekly

He's the most interesting man in the world. He changes diapers just because he likes it. He's counted to infinity-twice! He's stonger than Sasquatch, smarter than Einstein, and he cooks a mean spaghetti with M&Ms for all your bad days.

He's a myth. He's a legend. He's . . . my dad!

Dad: The Man, The Myth, The Legend is an epic-and totally unexaggerated-tale for dads everywhere! Heroic, hilarious, and heartwarming, it's the sweet saga of Dad: protector, provider, and child's best friend. 

And it's all true. Right, Dad?

The end includes a page for children to write what makes their own dad a legend.
