"A hilarious pictorial parody of a clueless father and his adorable daughter. In an attempt to create an image that his new daughter would one day appreciate, Dave Engledow took a photo in which he's cradling eight-week-old Alice Bee like a football and doctored it to look like he's squirting breast milk into a "World's Best Father" mug. Friends and family clamored for more. After Dave's humorous attempts to capture the sleep-deprived obliviousness of being a first-time dad went viral, he and Alice Bee found themselves bona fide Internet and television celebrities. Merging a Norman Rockwell aesthetic with a darkly comic sensibility, Dave pairs each side-splittingly funny image with a log entry describing the awkward situation that the World's Best Father has found himself in. Readers of Sh*t My Dad Says and Awkward Family Photos will devour the artful and hilarious Confessions of the World's Best Father"-- Provided by publisher.

Amazing photos by professional photographer and father Dave Engledow. No child was actually harmed in the making of this book.

Started as a sort of weekly online joke, Engledow has turned these parodies of those typical sweet baby pictures into a hilarious book! Seemingly clueless, he has created some great photos with similarly foolish text.
