Are You My Daddy?

Age: 3-5 | Grade: Grades Pre-K-K
Summary: Guy Parker-Rees's beloved animals are back in this humorous look-and-find novelty book featuring all kinds of daddy animals and their little ones.

"Ready or not, here I come!" Walt the Walrus called to his daddy.
They were playing Hide and Seek.
Walt looked to the left and he looked to the right.
Suddenly, he spotted something bushy that looked like his daddy's mustache.

"Are you my daddy?" he asked?
"No, I'm Daddy Penguin, and these are my bushy eyebrows".

This sweet, simple story with touch-and-feels, pull-tabs, and flaps is all about little Walt the Walrus's search for his mustachioed father in the zoo. As Walt searches, he comes across a hilarious array of bearded, bushy-eyebrowed, silly-haired, and yes--even bald!--dads. When he finally finds Daddy Walrus, he only has one question left to ask: "Can we play again"?
