About The Book

You may think your parents just boss you around and tell you what to do. And there's no getting away from it - they do have to do quite a lot of that! But there's so much more to them - did you realise they are also tent poles for dens that are wonky, dustbins for bits you don't want to eat up and grandstands to make you grow tall?

Discover all the wonderful things that parents do in this glorious new edition of Peter Bently and Sara Ogilvie's beloved picture book.
