Do you believe there’s life after death?
Slog does. He reckons that the scruffy bloke sitting outside the pork shop is his dad come back to visit him for one last time – just like he’d said he would, just before he died.
Slog’s mate Davie isn’t convinced. But how does this man know everything Slog’s dad would know? Because Slog says it really is his dad, that’s how.
Slog’s Dad is published by Walker Books, with ilustrations by Dave McKean.
It is also included in Half a Creature from the Sea.
