Synopsis

Like Father, Like Son? by Tony Bradman

“What on earth are you doing, Dad?”

No one questions a father more than a son, and no book has ever shown so many different answers! This unique collection explores the relationship between fathers and sons with comedy, wisdom and page-turning entertainment. You will find devoted dads, loving sons, dads with dark secrets and sons with dilemmas of their own. There is even a digital dad from the future. Featuring twelve brand-new stories from the best contemporary writers such as Farrukh Dhondy, Ron Koertge, Terence Blacker, Tim Wynne-Jones and Francis McCrickard, this superb collection will give you much to recognize, enjoy and think about, whether you are a son or the father of one.

About the Author

Tony Bradman was born in 1954 (not during the Jurassic era, as his children have been known to claim). He went to school in London, and then Cambridge University. After university he worked in the music press, then became Deputy Editor of Parents magazine, and began reviewing children’s books. He had his first book for children published in 1985 and became a full-time author in 1987.

He is perhaps best known in the UK for his Dilly the Dinosaur stories. His books have sold more than two million copies worldwide and he has been published in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Sweden, Spain and Japan amongst others.

Tony loves films and popular culture. He lives in Beckenham, Kent with his wife Sally and their three children Emma, Helen and Thomas and Rufus the cat.
