A Year in the Life of a New Father

Toby Morris’s graphic novel Don’t Puke On Your Dad celebrates the highs and lows of his first year of fatherhood, with quirky illustrations that reveal all the tantrums, joy, chaos, fatigue, teething, bliss and projectile puking. The book is full of heart- warming anecdotes and pictures that will have fathers laughing and nodding their heads in recognition.

A parenting book with a difference, new dad Toby Morris tracks the first year of fatherhood in cartoon form… Perfectly suited for sleep deprived parents, it gets the message across in pictures rather than screeds of words. It’s not a how-to book, it’s a fly-on- the-wall look at life with a baby.
