Giles Andreae (Author) Giles Andreae is the author of many top selling, award-winning picture books. These include Rumble in the Jungle, Commotion in the Ocean and I Love My Mummy. However, it is for the international bestseller Giraffes Can't Dance that he is best known. Giles is also the creator of Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman, and of the artist/philosopher, Edward Monkton. These two ranges of greetings cards, books and merchandise have made Giles the country's top-selling living poet. Giles lives with his wife, Victoria, a children's clothes designer, and their four young children by the river in Oxfordshire. Emma Dodd (Illustrator) Emma was brought up in Guildford, Surrey, in a family of artists. As a child she loved the work of Peter Firmin, John Burningham and Gerald Rose, and from as far back as she can remember she wanted to be an illustrator. Emma studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central Saint Martin's School of Art and has worked in advertising, editorial and book illustration. The I Love You range has sold over 750,000 copies and I Love My Mummy won the Book Trust Early Years Award. Emma lives in Surrey with her husband and two children and their terrier cross, Buzz, who keeps her fit and provides inspiration. The family like to spend any spare time in North Cornwall, surfing and walking in all weathers.

PreS-K-A follow-up to I Love My Mommy (Hyperion, 2011), this simple picture book pays tribute to the special connection between fathers and daughters. A small girl gives a rhyming account of her favorite things about her daddy. "He teaches lots of things to me,/I think he's clever. So does he!" Vivid spreads feature cartoon illustrations with bold outlines and appealing textures. Whether out on the town or cuddling on the couch, Dad, Daughter, and an ever-present stuffed rabbit radiate a comfortable warmth that will resonate with young listeners.-Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA (c) Copyright 2012.
