‘This is what fuels a fiction writer: the ongoing life of the ideas we love. The saddest thing about a book failing to reach an audience is not the wound to the ego, but the ending of the conversation.’—author Ilka Tampke reflects on the meaning of her novel Songwoman (Text) winning this year’s Most Underrated Book Award.
A fresh batch of dad jokes are on their way with an all new My Dad book in August 2020. Written by Katrina Germein and illustrated by Tom Jellett, My Dad Thinks He’s Super Funny is the third book in a series that is loved by kids (and dads) all around the world.
In this follow up to the bestselling My Dad Thinks He’s Funny and My Dad Still Thinks He’s Funny, Dad is up to it again. His audience has grown by one, and family life continues to provide an endless supply of fresh and brilliant comedic material for Dad. At least he seems to think so. My Dad Thinks He’s Super Funny is a book for anyone whose dad has made them laugh—or cringe! details on the website.

A huge thankyou, from Michael Heyward and all of us at Text.
