The trouble with Dad is that his job is so boring that he spends all his spare time making crazy robots – thief-catching robots, football-playing robots, slimming robots – and they all go wrong! Bestselling author Babette Cole brings her unique humour and delightful illustrations to this hilarious tale.

This is the second book in the wonderfully ridiculous Trouble with’s series: The Trouble with Mum, The Trouble with Gran, The Trouble with Grandad and The Trouble with Uncle.
