"I'll swap you my Dad," I said.
"Oh-oh," said my sister.
What if you wanted your best friend's two goldfish so much that you'd swap anything for them, even your dad?
What if your mum came home and found out what you'd done?
The Day I Swapped My Dad For Two Goldfish is a hilarious adventure trailing a brother and sister as they desperately seek to find their dad who, it turns out, has been swapped not just once but many times over. Where on earth can he be and where will this unique and wonderfully funny story end?
And now you can also listen to this remarkable story, read by the author, on a special CD recording found at the back of the book!
"'The Day I Swapped My Dad For Two Goldfish' is funny; it's also astute about the nature of sibling relationships... Gaiman's words and McKean's pictures are a match made in... some dark damp inspirational place. With gems like this and 'The Wolves in the Walls' the pair are extending the audience for picture books."
