Author(s): Alison McGhee

Picture Books

A father tells his young son the story behind each of his tattoos. There's one from a favourite book his mother used to read him, one from something his father used to tell him, and one from the longest trip he ever took. And finally, there's a little heart with numbers inside--which might be the best tattoo of all.In this beautiful conversation between parent and child, some very special tattoos illustrate an ode to all that's indelible--ink and love.
