Aput is a small fox in the Arctic who is watching the geese fly away when an egg drops from the sky and a little baby bird hatches from it.  "Daddy Honk Honk!" she squeaks.  Aput protests that he is not her daddy and they proceed through the polar animal world looking for a family for her.  Soon it becomes clear that Aput is meant to care for the birdie and become her daddy and he learns from his friends just how to go about it.  Much play and advice and ultimately love go into this beautiful book just in time for Father's Day! - Kate Brasch

An arctic fox adopts a baby goose in this heartwarming read-aloud perfect for dads and their little ones

When Aput the fox finds an abandoned goose egg, he has no idea what's in store for him. He doesn’t know anything about babies and he certainly doesn’t know what to do when the gosling hatches and mistakes him for its daddy. So he decides to find the gosling a home. But with each page turn, Aput learns  more about caring for a baby and, with a little help from his friends, he discovers what a baby needs most is love.

Praise for Daddy Honk Honk

“Perfect for Father’s Day, this sweet tale shows how love makes a family. A great choice for one-on-one and small group sharing.”—School Library Journal

"Aput’s evolution from helpful bystander to committed parent makes for a lovely narrative arc, but even more touching is Bonnet’s (the Ella and Penguin books) portrait of a lively, caring community." —Publishers Weekly 

"The focus is on the developing relationship between father and child; the fox's expression when the egg hatches is absolutely priceless and worth the cover price alone. A sweet adoption tale." —Kirkus
