Daddy Lost His Head by Quentin Blake & Andre Bouchard
Loved this book, Daddy Lost His Head, before I even read the first page. What kid wouldn't pluck this one right off the shelf? I found the book very amusing. If your Dad lost his head you would fashion him a new one of course. Newspaper, paint and a potato for a nose and voilà...there it is a new functioning head with many advantages. You see, he doesn't snore or shout, he readily agrees with you and is quite happy to do the vacuuming. Even better, take him shopping and he will buy anything you ask for. But...will Daddy ever find his real head and just how did he lose it in the first place? This is certainly a very absurd story but also very inventive and funny.
