Book giveaway: Demolition Dad by Phil Earle

Demolition Dad

This is the story of Jake Biggs and his dad, George. George spends all week knocking down buildings... and all weekend knocking down wrestlers.

He's the Demolition Man, and Jake couldn't be more proud. But when Jake hears about a pro-wrestling competition in the USA, and persuades his beloved dad to apply, things don't quite turn out the way he expected.

Demolition Dad is Danny the Champion of the World in spandex. A hilarious and warm story about friends, family and wrestling.
