Tell Me Another Story Dad is a children’s picture book written by Julie Hodgson and illustrated by Irene Czusz. The little boy in this story thinks his dad is the consummate storyteller. His dad doesn’t need to read stories from books; each tale he spins is magical and filled with adventure, derring-do, and imagination. There’s also a lot to laugh about in some of those stories, such as the one about the ghost who loved buttered toast, and the dragon who could only regain his ability to breathe fire by blowing his nose. Even after the boy has fallen asleep, the plots of his dad’s stories keep reeling on in his mind -- all the magic, adventure, and fantasy.
Julie Hodgson’s Tell Me Another Story Dad is a marvelous homage to the magic a parent can bring to a child’s life by telling them stories. They don’t have to be first-rate or spellbinding; they can be silly or adaptations of well-known tales. There’s something special about a dad or mom’s imagination and the stories they have inside them, just waiting to be shared with their child. Irene Czusz’s ink and wash illustrations masterfully accompany this fantastical book. Each panel teems with jewel-like colors and an unlimited amount of things to look at and discover on second or third readings. I had a grand time reading this book and loved studying those amazing illustrations, which could easily be framed and used to decorate a child’s bedroom. Tell Me Another Story Dad is most highly recommended.
