Review quote

"Inspired when he one day found his father's old dressing gown and felt instantly close to him, Browne wrote this lovingly illustrated tribute to a child's pride in his father. It instantly appeals: most children see their parents as superheroes even when their feats of heroism are simple everyday tasks" Junior "This is a perfect title for children to share with their dads. With a very minimal text and wonderful full page illustrations, this is a title that will warm the hearts of readers of all ages" Through the Looking Glass "The pictures are extraordinary and unforgettable and celebrate dads in a way few books do" Independent "For sheer illustrative wit, Anthony Browne is unsurpassed" The Times "Delightfully simple but visually impish" Literary Reviewshow more

Back cover copy

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... A warm, hilarious, witty and very personal tribute to Dad (and to dads everywhere) by the ever-brilliant and inventive Anthony Browne. SHORTLISTED FOR THE RIGHT START BEST TOY AWARD IN 2000show more
