My Amazing Dad By Ezekiel Kwaymullina, Illustrated by Tom Jellett
This dad is not like other dads. He is not good at:

Mowing the lawn,
Getting his children to school on time,
Baking cakes,
Fixing a leaky faucet, or
Remembering bed time

But, he is good at:

Making mazes,
Getting his children to school eventually,
Eating cakes,
Making bubble baths, and
Telling bedtime stories.

And this is what makes him so special.

With bright illustrations from award-winning illustrator Tom Jellett and minimal text by award-nominated Ezekiel Kwaymullina, My Amazing Dad celebrates the unconventional father who may not always get it right but certainly knows how to turn every day into something special.

About the author

Ezekiel Kwaymullina is the son of acclaimed author Sally Morgan and has collaborated with her and his siblings, Blaze and Ambelin, on several novels and picture books. He is a full-time writer in Perth, Australia.

Tom Jellett is an award-winning children’s book illustrator. He is based in Sydney, Australia.

“Working in a palette of creamy blues and greens, accented by bright reds and golds, Jellett creates an atmosphere of rowdy everyday fun in flattened, printlike illustrations of a shaggy-haired dad, his two children—and a small frog and gator thrown in for good measure. Despite the narrator’s belief that her father “is not like other dads,” most readers will recognize some of these traits in their own parents.” –Publishers Weekly
