Bellingham author Derek Munson shares his new picture book, "Bad Dad," at 6 p.m. Friday, March 7, at Village Books, Bellingham, 1200 11th St.
Uh oh. Looks like Dad's in trouble again. The library books are overdue, the kids are late for school, and the last cookie is missing from the cookie jar. Again. And somehow, Dad always seems to be in the middle of it all. But is he really all that bad?
Find out as Derek shares his book.
Come dressed in your PJs if you want, and show up ready for fun games and a few treats as well.
Munson says he works as a writer, speaker and all-around daydreamer and his current hobbies include playing with his kids, avoiding his household responsibilities and crashing on his mountain bike.
He lives in Bellingham with his wife, Suzanne; their daughter, Abby; their son, Zack; and Roger, the family dog.
He is also the author of the children's book, "Enemy Pie."
