My favorite dad is Precious Ramotswe's daddy in the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith.   I love this series of books and although Mma Ramotswe's father is late when we first meet her, she remembers him as honorable, kind, wise and of the highest character.   I only hope I will be remembered by my children in such high regard.

It's a neat little series, around 200 pages per book. They are sweet and reflect Positive life values In Mma Ramotswe's daily life as a lady detective in Botswana.
