Synopsis

365 Reasons to be Proud to be a Dad The Greatest Dad Moments in History by Ian Allen

Discover how 26 August is the anniversary of the car you probably learned to drive in, and stroke your smooth chin thoughtfully as you learn that 13 May is the day the electric shaver was invented. Find out when and where the first piece of flatpack furniture was invented (Ancient Greece, no less, and it was more of a temple than a wardrobe...), and, on 19 November, remember that there's always a more incompetent parent than you as you recall the day a certain baby boy was dangled off a balcony.

About the Author

Ian Allen is a father of three teenagers and a funny man indeed. He has been a freelance editor from Staffordshire - recently voted England's least amusing county - for the past 17 years. During that time Ian has worked on hundreds of books, a handful of which were even intended to be comical. Ian is qualified to degree-level in Data Processing, which is just hilarious. Ian is perhaps best known as being the compiler of The Very Embarrassing Book of Dad Jokes , also by Portico.
