Daddy, Come Out!

£100.00

Product description

Matthew is unhappy because his father, an artist, is busy working on a book and cannot go out to play with him on Saturday morning like other fathers do. 
"I wish you had an ordinary job," Matthew tells his father, and suggests various alternative occupations: a baker, a barber, a ship captain, a policeman, an architect, an garage mechanic. 
For each job Matthew's father draws an amusing picture showing all the mistakes he would make because he doesn't have the necessary training. 
Then Thomas comes over, enjoys the drawings and announces that his father can't draw anything. 
The two boys go out to play and Daddy returns to his book, hoping to finish it by Wednesday so that he can play with Matthew on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 
The pictures -- both Daddy's and the artist's -- are a playful and attractive combination of collage, paint and line drawings that lend an original twist to the perennially favourite subject of occupations.
