When his son Sean was three years old, John Lennon drew a magical, whimsical set of animal illustrations to help him learn to read. This volume collects 40 of the drawings which reflect Lennon's humour and his love for his son.
John Lennon was many things to many people: singer, songwriter, poet, political activist and a member of what was, inarguably, the greatest rock-and-roll band of all time. But to Sean Lennon he was Daddy, a role he took on with as much humour, intensity and enthusiasm as any he had tackled. John made the drawings in this book for and with Sean. Drawing pictures and making up funny captions was one of the ways they played together. It was how John taught Sean about the simple joys of creativity and one of the many ways John was able to express his real love for - and great joy in - his son. This collection of forty magical, whimsical and often very funny animal drawings have never been presented to the public before.
