There are sausages sizzling in the frying pan, but where’s the cook? Luckily, Mr Martin discovers that being invisible can also have its good side.

Lütje, Susanne (Author) Livanios, Eleni (Illustrator)

In The Nicest Dad in the World, the little bear’s daddy gives him bread and honey, the little hare plays hide and seek with Daddy Hare, and Father Dog carries his little puppy home on his back when he is too tired to walk any further. And the human daddy tucks his child into bed and sings him a lullaby until he falls asleep.

In The Nicest Mummy in the World, we want to find out whose mummy is the nicest in the world. Is it the squirrel whose mummy rocks him in her arms? Or the polar bear whose mummy makes him hot tea? Or perhaps the little fox whose mummy kisses away the pain when he hurts himself? In the end, one thing is clear: every child has the nicest mummy in the world!
