The purpose of this modest volume is to provide the new father with a true story of pregnancy, childbirth and newborns. A picture that is not coloured by the biases of the professional practitioner but contains the honest experiences of a hapless novice father who was caught up in a strange experience, managed to cope and wound up enjoying the process more than he anticipated.
The book contains many amusing cartoon drawings by the noted Canadian illustrator, David Shaw.
