Review

Delightfully simple but visually impish Literary Review For sheer illustrative wit, Anthony Browne is unsurpassed The Times The pictures are extraordinary and unforgettable and celebrate dads in a way few books do Independent 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 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
