From the author of Reach for the Stars and one of the major illustrators of his generation, a joyful and funny celebration of ordinary family life
When I grow up, I want to be like my dad.
Sam's dad is an artist, and Sam's life is full of creativity, exploration, and adventure. Serge Bloch's semiautobiographical picture book shows life through Sam's eyes, as he plays with his little brother, goes to the park, visits a farm, and goes on holiday—all in the company of the long-suffering but affectionate Dad he loves so much. This beautiful picture book captures the little details that excite a child's imagination and the quirky ways they interpret the adult world. It's a book any child can see themselves in and relate to.
