Nathalia Buttface by Nigel Smith
Published by HarperCollins
Nathalia Bumole (pronounced Bew-mole-ey, if you don’t mind) is the long-suffering daughter of the most embarrassing dad ever! In this latest book by Nigel Smith, “Nathalia Buttface” (as she is unaffectionally known), reluctantly goes on a comical journey with her dad, best friend, and family dog to a run-down holiday home in France – the latest of her dad’s harebrained ideas. Although her dad’s embarrassing behaviours, habits, sayings, and appearance are exasperating to Nathalia, these characteristics are hugely entertaining to the rest of us. The question is, will this holiday to France help Nathalia realise that her dad also has an endearing side or will the trip be the most epic embarrassment ever?!
This book is an entertaining read for mid-childhood kids through to early teens and beyond. Even adults will have some “laugh out loud” moments as they empathise with Nathalia and recall their own embarrassing dads.
