There is a fine crop of picture books out for Father’s Day about why children love their dads. This one stands out, not least because it is about paternal ażection for a child. With a charming retro style, reminiscent of the four-colour printing of

the 1950s, it reassures Matty that his father will collect him from nursery, come what may. Matty is anxious because the car briefly fails to start in the morning. What if it does so at the end of the day? His father promises to travel by one of several fantastical means, including birds, a bear and a dragon — or by his own long legs. And once home, there will be a tea party with fantastical company, too. Lively, bright and funny, this is a great book for fond fathers to read aloud.

Daddy Long Legs by Nadine Brun-Cosme and Aurélie Guillerey review – chicest picture book of the year

Full of quirky detail, this father and son jaunt is satisfyingly silly
Daddy Long Legs: ‘an original depiction of a parent-child relationship’
Daddy Long Legs: ‘an original depiction of a parent-child relationship’.

Atall tale of fatherly devotion with a dash of Edward Gorey and a lot of mid-century modern style, Daddy Long Legs is surely a frontrunner for the year’s chicest picture book. Created by two established French talents, author Nadine Brun-Cosme and illustrator Aurélie Guillerey, it’s a story told in glorious Technicolor about a dad with an unreliable car and his anxious son wanting reassurance that he’ll be collected from nursery.

From the opening page, it’s clear we’re in for a quirky ride: Matty’s dad, a lanky chap with dots for eyes, a pink carrot nose and a drainpipe suit, leans, puzzled, over his old green “hiccuping” car. The pair eventually make it to nursery, but “what if the car doesn’t start again?” worries Matty. There’s always the neighbour’s big red tractor, says Dad, beginning to list increasingly absurd ways he could employ to pick up his son. What if the tractor’s tired? Well, says Dad, a man whose patience seems as never-ending as his limbs, he could catch a ride with Matty’s old ted, some rabbits or even a dragon. And if all else fails – we see Dad hurdling hills and trees – “my legs will never be too tired to come and get you”.

One of those books with the sort of repetitive pattern that can get a bit tiresome for adults reading aloud, thankfully Daddy Long Legs is full of such quirky detail that it never gets dull. At times reminiscent of the classic lullaby Hush, Little Baby, but with soothing promises that are satisfyingly silly, this is an original depiction of a parent-child relationship with an eye-popping palette to rival Miffy.
