Ten years after When Mama Comes Home Tonight was published, a new book with the same charm and sweetness is born - this time focusing on the love of a papa.

'When Papa comes home tonight, dear child,
(I promise - not too late)
you'll hear me whistling up the road.
You'll meet me at the gate.

What is every child's dream? To have a day with their daddy in which all attention is on them, right? This little boy's daddy promises to spend the whole day with him - they're going to play bold knight and dragon, fix his wagon, cook and wash up, and read a bedtime story together. And papa keeps his promises, as evidenced in the warm illustrations and smooth prose.

A perfect book for papa to read with his little one! When Papa Comes Home Tonight shows a father's love for his child and teaches the importance of time spent together to daddies and children alike.
