Summary
  • "[A] subject every child can relate to -- the fear of getting separated from a parent. However, in Éric Veillé's original story, the roles are reversed and the child is the one searching, while the dads are all "lost" and waiting to be picked up" --
  • "When a little boy realizes, "I accidentally misplaced my dad this morning," he runs outside to look for him. There he meets a man who tells the boy he works at the Bureau of Misplaced Dads. "Come with me," the man says. "With any luck, your father will be there waiting for you ..." At the Bureau of Misplaced Dads, the boy is shown dozens of dads who are missing their children -- including a Super Dad, a dancing dad and a dad "who always looks like he's just gotten out of bed" -- but none of them are the right dad. None of them are his dad. Is the little boy looking in the wrong place?" --
