oey Abbott's picture book,
(aimed at ages 3-7), is all about a girl's great relationship with her dad, and what she does to get it back when he's distracted ... by a banana.
he girl and her father have great fun together - swimming and diving, and playing shark games in the pool. When dad buys a banana, they even explore it together - and take it everywhere.
ut when dad's fascination turns into an obsession, he '
doesn't have time for riding bikes or picnics or bedtime stories anymore.
' What can she do about it? Well, it's quick and effective - and it gets the message across.
hough the premise is a bit silly, young readers don't mind silly and most will enjoy the role reversal at the end.
