Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the 2000 Hans Christian Andersen Medalist

In an endearing homage to dads everywhere, a boy describes — and exaggerates — the many accomplishments and feats of his father. Among the traits praised are his enormous talent for singing, his near-professional wrestling skills, his extreme bravery in the face of danger (he's not even afraid of the Big Bad Wolf!), and his ability to — quite literally, in Anthony Browne's world — eat like a horse. All of the pictures feature the lovable pater in his signature plaid bathrobe, adding a further comfy layer to a book whose ultimate message is "I love my dad. And you know what? HE LOVES ME! (And he always will.)".

Synopsis:

In this homage to fathers, a boy describes, and exaggerates, the accomplishments of his dad, describing his skills in professional wrestling, bravery in the face of danger, and his talent for singing. Full-color illustrations.
