Dad is as strong as a gorilla and as happy as a hippopotamus; he can wrestle with giants and jump over the moon. This very personal tribute to Dad (and to dads everywhere) praises fatherhood with the superlatives used by children everywhere

"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"

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.
