Take a punt on Dad this Father’s Day and join the Millett/Cooper/Laga’aia ruck, the knock-on effect will have everyone singing along! Peter Millett’s rollicking sidestep into the world of ‘rugger’ couldn’t be better matched than with Jenny Cooper’s wickedly funny illustrations. And with Jay Laga’aia anchoring the scrum, everyone scores a try!
• A celebration of dads, of all shapes and sizes
• Jay Laga’aia’s performance on accompanying CD will have everyone cheering from the sidelines
• Peter Millett has created a real winner in this rendition, and Jenny Cooper is truly at her best
