Non-Crappy Book Giveaway: Confessions of the World’s Best Father

Talking about another artist’s book today, spreading the love, baby! This time it is (drumroll please) Dave Engledow with his brand new book, Confessions of the World’s Best Father.

You’ve probably seen his photos via his Facebook Page and I’ve written about his work before and how he used some crappy glitter art of mine in one of his photographs. (The link to the photo on that old post is dead but you can see the photo in the book.) 

I caught Crappy Boy checking out the book:


Followed by a reaction of…


And then, “Is this real? It can’t be real!” (There’s a cool behind the scenes section at the back of the book where Dave shows how he doesn’t actually let Alice Bee play with deep fryers or knives.)

Not only are the photos amazing on their own, in the book they are accompanied by hilarious journal-style entries about their day. But here’s the shocker, although stuff is exaggerated to match the tone of the photographs, it’s all totally relatable. Like when he doesn’t understand why the dishes don’t wash themselves when his wife, Jen, leaves town. Or how difficult it is to convince a toddler to wear clothing.

Loved it.

Check it out: Confessions of the World’s Best Father.

And… ONE of you can win a copy right here! Enter via rafflecopter thingy below.

  260. Denise Z says:

    Ha! My brother in law just had a baby yesterday….he probably thinks he’s the World’s Best Father already. He’ll have to arm wrestle my own hubby, his brother, for that title, tho.

  261. Amy B says:

    I ran across his name and his photography work just today. He is very creative!

    Alice Bee is adorable!

  283. Chelsea says:

    Yesterday my toddler WANTED to get dressed. He got mad when I took his brother off the changer and walked away, then he went to his closet and started pointing at his clothes. Then once I got him an outfit, he demanded I put it on him. The world is ending guys. Prepare.

    His pics are the best. I would love a copy of the book!

  293. Beth says:

    I love the look on Crappy Boy’s face when he says, “That doesn’t even look safe.”

  294. Deckled Edges says:

    Looks great!

  295. Jenn says:

    My takeaway?

  306. Sonia says:

    Books! I love books!!

  307. Jamie says:

    I feel so inferior…I NEVER think of cool things like this to do!!

    You were my first introduction to this guy — thank you!

  344. That was my Kindergartener’s reaction to reading your book! She loves it, and reads it again and again. And she likes to draw her own versions (uncannily similar to your artwork…)

    It has been absorbed into her collective. I only got to read it the one time.

  345. Sarah A says:

    I love his photos — they capture a magical imagination that parents can relate to…especially imagining the daddies in these situations. I often do wonder why the dishes don’t wash themselves…I am already convinced that they breed.

  346. imamann says:

    I LOVE his pictures. 🙂

  347. Sabrina says:

    I bought and loved your book! I love the worlds best father photographs he has such an amazing imagination, not to mention photoshop skills!

  349. bn100 says:

    Cute drawings

  350. Stephanie Jacobson says:

    My husband wonders what has happened when the “laundry fairy” seems to skip our house & the dirty laundry piles up.

  351. Jean L says:

    Crappy boy is growing up! One moment he is having fun looking through the pictures, and next, he realizes the dangers of what seems to be going on.

    I love seeing two of my favorite artists come together!
