«And then, dad?». The baby, before going to sleep, wants his dad to tell him his fantastic stories. And dad doesn’t stand on ceremony. Here you have him seizing lightnings, or arbitrating a match between walruses and codfishes or even cooking a gigantic cake on the edge of a volcano. Powerful imagination and exciting illustration in a book full of colours and amusement.
