Who Wrote It?

Dave Lowe taught English for four years in a high school for disadvantaged kids in Istanbul, and has also worked in Malaysia and Australia. He is married with two daughters. When he was younger, Dave also had a pet hamster, but he didn't talk so much.

In his spare time he likes to play the harp, juggle chainsaws, and tickle trout. Actually, none of that is true, but it’s a lot more interesting than his real answer, which is: playing football, reading, and losing to my wife and daughters at cards.

What's It About?

Ten days, ten tasks - can Holly complete her very own Dadventure? Holly's dad is an explorer, having amazing adventures all over the world, while Holly is stuck at home with her mum, her baby brother and the dog. Now Dad's on a new expedition and he'll miss her tenth birthday. She's not happy - until she finds out that he's planned a special treasure hunt, just for her. She has ten days to complete ten tasks - some silly, some tricky and some downright terrifying. Maybe life at home isn't quite so boring after all.

Fact File

Fact 1: Dave’s favourite word is “sausages”.

Fact 2: The other books in the series are called The Mumbelievable Challenge and The Spectacular Holly-Day

Fact 3: Dave lives in Brisbane, Australia.

Madi from Whinmoor St Pauls C of E Primary School:

I REALLY enjoyed this book and I wish I could be Holly. Her dad is an amazing man it seems and he is a very lucky man too! My favorite task was task 10 because the clue was 'Break a leg and have some fun' and it was definitely right. I would suggest this book for 5 - 10 years of age. I guarantee that you would love this book if you read it and I am NOT lying! Well done Dave Lowe for such a success. Dave, which was your favorite task?

Nadia from Whinmoor St Paul's C of E Primary School:

It was a good book but at the end it started to get a bit boring because part of it was similar to the other tasks that Holly had to complete. I would recommend this to most of my friends though.

Yusuf from Whinmoor ST Pauls C of E Primary School:

I love a good adventure. Who doesn't? I wish I could have a dadventure. Since I am a Cub I love adventure and know what it is like at the start at an adventure. Sometimes its nerve racking sometimes exciting. Sometimes you wait for the day and on the day you want to leave it. Holly was brave for not giving up even though she was injured and had cramps.How did she go down the mountain with a walking stick[tree branch]?

Ruairi from Immaculate Heart :

The book was good because I liked all the tasks and it was interesting because her Dad was in a different part of the world but was still phoning her every day and it felt like he was actually with them but he wasn't.

Maisy from Southroyd Primary :

I love this book! It is such an action packed adventure, Holly's mum reminds me of my mum being so over protective. I would rate this book to anyone, from a 2 year old to a fully grown adult. If I am allowed, I might buy this book and the mumbelievable challenge. Some of the challenges Holly does in this book are amazing, but some I wouldn't dare to do.

Dave Lowe I really loved The Incredible Dadventure because I thought Holly was very adventurous. Also I loved how creative you were when writing and my favorite part was when Holly persevered and climbed up Harold's Peak. Last but not least I hope you make more of these Dadventure books.

João from Oulton primary school:

Do the characters have to have huge heads? and it was boring because it was only about a girl that hasn't seen her father for a long time. Then he calls and gives his daughter an adventure and it doesn't have danger on the book.

Isaac from Oulton Primary School:

I thought the book needed to explain more about the other characters. It only has four characters in the book. I wanted to find out more about them. I liked how the girl didn't like the old man but things weren't as they seemed.

Ben from Whinmoor St Pauls C of E Primary School:

I enjoyed this book a lot and I miss reading it even though I finished it one day ago because every turn of a page is the start of a new adventure and a massive exciting one too. If I was to judge out of the three books that I have read so far then it would definitely be this book by 100000 stars!Thank you Dave Lowe for writing this incredible,fantastic and amazing book!!!!!!

Holly from Southroyd Primary:

I loved this book very very much. Every page is full of adventure and every sentence made me want to read on. I am also called Holly however I wish I was as courageous as the Holly in this book. Also, I would definitely rate it 5/5 because I love adventure stories and this one was especially good because at the end of each chapter, I tried to work out what was going to happen next.

Elera from Whinmoor St Paul's Church of England :

I like this book because it is adventurous and Holly conquers her fear of heights.I also like the tasks her crazy dad tells her to do. It is also sad because her dad didn't get to celebrate her birthday.Her dad knew that Holly thought it was not fair that she couldn't go on adventures like her dad.(It was his job.)

Patrick from Whinmoor St Paul's C of E Primary School:

This is a really fun book to read. It makes me think carefully about Holy's Dadventure. I found parts of the book rather surprising and I kept wondering what was going to happen next. I would recommend this book to my friends.
