Father’s Day is just a few weeks away, and here at Robinsons Books we want to help you make it as special a day as ever! We know there are all kinds of dads and father figures out there (not every dad loves football!) so we’ve created a ‘dad type’ portal on our website to make things easier for you. Our wonderful booksellers have hand-picked the best of the best books, and other goodies, and arranged them by dad types to help you choose something special for your dad or grandad!

My Dad Had That Car by Tad Burness

With more than 1,300 pages and 12,500 illustrations covering 70 years, this may be the most complete visual history of the American automobile ever published. Nowhere else are there so many collector, luxury, sporting and every day cars assembled with fascinating information about original prices, engine sizes, horsepower, and other specifications. The pages are packed with genuine, factory-fresh photographs and drawings taken from contemporary advertisements, catalogs, and brochures.

More than 250 manufacturers and hundreds of individual models trace the evolution of the American automobile, from the millions of Model Ts that rolled off Ford’s assembly line through the art deco streamliners of the ’30s, to the tail-finned land yachts of the ’50s and muscle cars of the ’60s and ’70s up to the early SUVs of the ’90s. Throughout author Tad Burness adds handwritten details not found anywhere else, including pointing out unusual options and differences found within a model. Automotive journalist Matt Stone provides a new general introduction and one to each era within the book.


You’re Dad A Little Book For Fathers by Liz Climo

The hilarious and heartwarming companion to international bestselling author Liz Climo’s You’re Mum.

DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD! Oh, hello! Now that I have your attention… You must be dad!

You’re probably pretty busy. Being a dad isn’t easy.

Maybe you already know this. Maybe you will soon.​

Perhaps you’ve been preparing for this day for a long time. Perhaps you haven’t.

And if you have a little one on the way you might feel a little anxious. Maybe even a bit scared. There’s a lot to prepare and plan. Because, let’s face it – being a dad is a huge responsibility.

But, it’s worth it.

Now the real fun begins. ​

From new dads to those who’ve been around the block, dads who go to work to those who are at home, and all the dads in between, You’re Dad is a touching tribute to fathers everywhere.

With humour, heart and adorable drawings, Liz Climo celebrates fatherhood in all its shapes and sizes (and species). Featuring different types of dads and the paths they may travel, Climo’s whimsical animal illustrations take us through the adventures of fatherhood, commemorating the laughter and the tears as well as the stumbles and the triumphs.

Perfect for dads, the dad-like, any and all parents and the people who love them, this sweet collection of fatherly love will move and delight.


We also have some beautiful non-book gifts!
