BOOK REVIEW: The Bureau of Misplaced Dads by Éric Veillé


BLURB:

When a boy's father goes missing, he looks for him at The Bureau of Misplaced Dads, where at least 20 or 30 dads wander in every day and wait for their kids to fetch them. There are bearded dads, a dad named Michael and even a Super Dad, but none of them belong to the boy. He is about to lose hope when he suddenly remembers what he and his father were playing just before the disappearance. Like the best dads, this book is a little bit kooky and a whole lot of fun.

REVIEW BY: Angelina, age 8 years, 10 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

I loved this book so much and it was a fantastic book! Now I will tell you about this book. This book is great for kids and dads to read together. 

A little boy told his dad to pretend that he was a coat rack, but forgot that he told him to do that, so he started searching for his dad. He went to The Bureau of Misplaced Dads and found out that there are a lot of dads in the world. The boy asked a man to help him and that man was able to help him look for his dad. The man asked the boy why the boy can't just adopt another dad and the boy said "NO, NO, I WANT MY DAD ONLY," so they kept on searching and the man found more dads that the little boy might like, but he didn't like any of them. Finally, he remembered where his dad was and everything was perfect again. 

My favorite part of this book is when the guy named the kinds of dads that the boy can choose from. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 7-9.
