Slog’s Dad

slogs-dad-coverSlog’s Dad, written by David Almond and illustrated by Dave McKean, is a fascinating story about a boy, Slog, who believes the man on the bench is his dad. Nevermind that his dad died. Or that the man looks nothing like his father.

Narrated by Slog’s unbelieving friend in a North English/Scottish dialect, we hear all of the reasons why it could be Slog’s dad and why it couldn’t be, all while enjoying a fantastical, eerie story and several cool illustrations.
