Inspired by the author's own daughter and her Papa, the rhyming story brings their relationship to life on the page with over 25 full-color illustrations.

The book also includes bonus material about Utqiaġvik, Alaska, where the story is set. Join Peanut and Papa on their fun day together in Adventures of Papa and Peanut.
