Industry Reviews

"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 Review *
