This Is My Dad is a timely, important and heartwarming look at modern family dynamics. It highlights that families come in all shapes and sizes and they are all worthy of celebration.
With one in four children in the UK living with a single parent, and 90% of those parents being a woman, Leo’s family situation will resonate with millions of children, and provide a valuable insight for millions more.
The characters are Leo and Mama.
Leo – proportions, colour pallet, clothes
Mama – hair, height, colours
