One day at the park, Dad warns Thomas not to put his head through the railings. "Like this?" asks Thomas. "No," says Dad, "not like that, like this."
As people walk by and see Dad's head stuck fast, they all have an idea to free him. First, along comes an old lady. Then, two men with their dogs. Followed by three park keepers; four people jogging; five boys on bikes; six mothers with their babies; seven girls jumping rope.... Still more people arrive. "Not like that, like this," they all say. Can you guess who finally rescues Dad?
Every child will chuckle over Dad's plight in this delightfully original counting book, with its simple funny story by Tony Bradman and bright appealing illustrations by Joanna Burroughes.
