The Bureau of Misplaced Dads (Eric Veille)

I didn't really like this book. It reminds me of the trend in the world to portray men as bumbling idiots. I wondered if it was a commentary on dead beat dads. The whole story just made me a little uncomfortable.

Goodreads summary:

When a boy's father goes missing, he looks for him at The Bureau of Misplaced Dads, where at least 20 or 30 dads wander in every day and wait for their kids to fetch them. There are bearded dads, a dad named Michael and even a Super Dad, but none of them belong to the boy. He is about to lose hope when he suddenly remembers what he and his father were playing just before the disappearance. Like the best dads, this book is a little bit kooky and a whole lot of fun. (less)
