Synopsis

Sally is fed up with being a child. You always have to do something boring and the adults make all the decisions. Sally’s dad on the other hand has had enough of being an adult. They promptly decide to swap for the day: Sally will be the grown-up decision-maker and Sally’s dad will be the care-free child. Sally has to pick up dad at work, do the shopping and cook for the family. Sally’s dad has to go to bed early. It turns out to be the weirdest day ever.

Reviews

"Hugely entertaining " – (Information)

"Outspoken, politically incorrect and free from raised fingers and spelt buns" – (Litteratursiden)

"We didn't have any doubts about this series. We knew right away that it would be perfect for the Polish market, though we didn't expect such great success. We have trouble seeing the series as picture books, not because of the amount of text, but the format and the target reader, because it's directed at a double reader: at kids that are a bit older than the usual picture book readers and at their parents (as in the case of Shrek). I'm not sure who has more fun reading these books: parents or children?" – Katarzyna Biegańska (Polish editor at Dwukropek)
