Synopsis

"A witty, big-hearted book" - Guardian



From the uniquely talented, award-winning picture book creator, Marta Altes, author of Little Monkey, comes the perfect book for Father's Day. A beautifully observed, brilliantly funny story all about time and how children and adults see it VERY differently. Perfect for busy children and tired dad's everywhere!



Time is a funny thing. Dad talks about it a lot, but I think I know more about time than he does.



A child gives his time-starved dad some sage advice about what 'time' really means, and how to make the most of it. Wise, witty and full of acutely observed vignettes of family life, Five More Minutes is a brand new title from bestselling author-illustrator, two times CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal nominee and BookTrust Time to Read favourite, Marta Altes.



"Utterly relatable for anyone with a young family" - BookTrust



"A wise, witty story, full of acutely observed vignettes of family life" - Just Imagine
