Product description

He's all right, my dad. He's as strong as a gorilla and as happy as a hippopotamus. He's a great dancer, a brilliant singer, he's fantastic at football and he makes me laugh. A lot. But that's not all that's great about my dad...This is a warm, hilarious, witty and very personal tribute to Dad (and to dads everywhere) by the ever-brilliant and inventive Anthony Browne.

My baby loves books.
Bought this book about daddy to motivate daddy to read this together with baby.
Nice and cute! Worth buying, good length, simple

My 1 year old "bought" this for his Daddy this Fathers Day. They love reading it together and laughing at the pictures. The illustrations are hilarious! My husband loves this book and said it reminded me of how children view their parents, especially their Dad!
It's a great book, especially in the hardback board book edition.
