A touching yet amusing story about a boy’s admiration for his dad and acceptance of his limitations.

T is part of a happy family, and he loves everything about them - especially his clever dad. When T’s teacher arranges for his dad to come into school to talk about what he does for a job, T should be as proud as punch. But there’s one problem: his dad doesn’t speak English. T worries about what to do, but his dad is cleverer than he thinks. When he comes in to school and does an amazing puppet show, T realises that being the same as other people is not everything. His dad really is a hero!

  • Perfect for Father’s Day
  • Covers age-old themes of family relationships, bullying and concerns about fitting in.

'The perfect story to read with your dad or that special person on Father's Day. The story is funny, and the characters are lovely - especially Tariq, who is a really thoughtful and loving boy, that we couldn't help loving back!' CITV
