The internet’s “World’s Best Father," award-winning photographer Dave Engledow, follows up his picture book debut, The Little Girl Who Didn’t Want to Go to Bed, with a new hilarious, eye-popping photographic adventure in The Little Girl Who Wanted to Be Big.

There once was a little girl who wanted to be big. Her dad told her that to be big, she had to think big. So she did—she grew taller than the tallest buildings, larger than the largest mountain, and big enough to reach the farthest plants. But being the biggest person in the universe also makes it hard to go home. What’s the biggest girl in the world to do when she’s grown up a little too fast?

Dave Engledow first made waves on the internet with a picture he took of himself groggily cradling his daughter, Alice, like a football and squirting milk from her bottle into a “World’s Best Father” mug of coffee. Dave’s fathering adventures only got sillier, and soon he had enough pictures to publish an adult trade book, Confessions of the World’s Best Father. His work has been featured by People, GQ, the Washington Post, BuzzFeed, USA Today, the Today show, Time, and many others.

Dave Engledow brings his vibrant photography to a picture book that’s all about why it’s okay to take your time just being a kid.
