A humorous operating guide for fathers, The Toddler Owner's Manual is sure to bring a smile to any dad's face for Fathers Day this year.

This essential handbook covers the difficult ownership period of your Mother Nature Heavy Industry child from 18 months to three years. This out of warranty period can be difficult and the manual will help fathers navigate such vexing stages as solid food consumption, child self waste disposal training, tentative first steps as well as long term servicing and immunisation issues and maximising the usefulness of your toddler. This is a must have book for any father facing the challenges of a rapidly developing 'little human.
