My Dad is a Loser is a madcap must-read for boys who love funny books such as Mr Gum and Wimpy Kid. For all non-loserish dads and their sons. Read this little book to find out why I, Barry Loser, am definitely not at all loserish, even though my dad definitely is. Praise for my other book, I Am Not A Loser, which is about 8 million times longer than this one: Brilliant: My mum. Amazing: Also my mum. Jim Smith's hilarious illustrated books with their distinctive style and comedy genius make him (and Barry, of course) the coolest or keelest new writer of books for kids who love to have fun when they read. Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid or David Walliams will love Barry Loser's stories. Jim is also the creator of Waldo Pancake.
