About the Author
Eve Bunting has written more than two hundred books for children, including Scary, Scary Halloween and Little Bear's Little Boat. She lives in Pasadena, California. Susan Meddaugh has been a designer and art director, but is best known for her Martha Speaks books about a talking dog, and their television versions on PBS. She lives in Sherborn, Massachusetts.
"It's Father's Day, and four-year-old Susie has planned a perfect outing with all the things she knows her dad will like the best. . . . Bunting's simple, witty text sketches a warm father-daughter relationship and affectionately glances at the four-year-old mind at work. Meddaugh's bright watercolors and pencil illustrations add to the humor as they show the two enjoying the day but with clearly differing levels of energy and points of view." Booklist, ALA "Clearly the perfect Father's Day requires the perfect father, and Susie's parent quite literally takes the cake. Meddaugh's balloon-colored cartoons are perfectly tuned to the spirit of the day. With more spontaneity than most made-to-order picture books, this is an engaging family portrait and a winning tribute to 'Dad.'" School Library Journal
