The benefits of reading to your children are well-documented, but reading to them about synths? That’s got to give them an even better start in life, surely.

Destined to become a bedtime classic, My Daddy Has 100 Synths is a new Dr Seuss-style rhyming children’s book that documents the relationship between a synth-obsessed father and his child (sample couplet: “Why do you need to bring your Bass Station/Even when we go on family vacation?”).

This toddler-friendly hi-tech tome is the work of Billy Cardigan, one half of musical duo Shy Boyz, and the writer of both previous children’s book My Daddy Has 100 Pedals, and Obtuse Chambers, a collection of short stories about guitar pedals and players.
