Dad By My Side

Whether they're playing make-believe, making you smile, or warding off monsters under the bed, dads are always there when you need them. Debut picture book artist Soosh celebrates fathers with a gorgeously illustrated and moving story about the parent-child bond.

When Soosh first posted her initial series of images of a larger-than-life father and his adorable daughter on Instagram, fans from across the world immediately took notice with over 2 million views on a popular viral content website in a single week. These illustrations now come together in a universally relatable story of familial love for parents and children to share.

"With great tenderness, Soosh conveys the many important roles that a father plays in a child's life — roles that can change from moment to moment." — Publishers Weekly

"Making her debut, Soosh introduces a loving dad with a red mullet, curly beard, and wide, sloping shoulders. His daughter, a tiny girl with long, dark hair, describes the ways he nurtures, teaches, and supports her: 'He tells the best stories. He makes me feel cozy. He protects me from monsters under the bed'.... Even when he is away, 'he doesn’t miss a single lullaby' by calling her on the phone." — Publishers Weekly
