A heart-warming book celebrating the special bond between father and child, featuring flurries of silver foil on every page!

When I became your daddy,
you made my world complete.
I didn't know the little things
in life could be so sweet.

A beautiful, reassuring picture book about the unconditional love a father has for his children. Whether exploring rockpools, playing in the sand, or floating snug together in the sea, there's nothing this little otter loves more than spending time with their daddy.

With a lyrical rhyming text by Susannah Shane and stunning artwork by award-winning and internationally bestselling artist Britta Teckentrup, this picture book makes the perfect gift for Father's Day or following the arrival of a new baby.  See also:  When I Became Your Mummy



When I Became Your Daddy is a sweet rhyming book about the relationship between a father and their child. This beautifully illustrated book follows an otter and its pup as they explore all the things unconditional love brings. There is silver foil decorating each page, making the water scenes shimmer and come to life. My daughter loves this book and will ask to change the word Daddy to Mummy - depending on who is reading it to her. The text is reassuring and comforting and it’s a perfect book to add to a bedtime routine.
