Dad might not have a superhero mask or wear his pants outside his trousers, but his super snores can be heard a thousand miles away, he tells super jokes and can even make super-scary monsters go away at bedtime.

What the Critics Said

“Dads are sometimes boring,/ but mine’s not, and I’m glad,/ because, you see, he’s secretly a…/ superhero dad!” With rhymes that bound along and equally energetic digital artwork, Knapman and Berger highlight a boy’s love for his father, who looks like a Clark Kent–esque nerd but can make a truly super breakfast (“The very best is toast with chocolate,/ and fruit, ice cream, and cake!”); (mostly) knows his way around a hammer, nails, and saw; and scares away any nighttime monsters. Visual references to superhero comics and jokes at dad’s expense, as when he holds the tiny family dog over his head like a weight lifter, add to a playful portrait of mutual father-son devotion.

    :

    One of the coolest things about this book is the cover – there’s a circular cut-out where the dad’s face peeks through from the page underneath. When you open the cover there is just a normal dad underneath the costume. The story is told by a boy who thinks his dad is absolutely super. You can hear his snoring from miles away, his jokes are super funny and he makes monsters disappear. Timothy Knapman’s rhyming text rolls off your tongue and Joe Berger’s bright and vibrant illustrations really are super. It’s a wonderful story about the super things that dads do and the super sons that they have. I love the message of this book, that everything that dads do with their kids, no matter how small, makes them superheroes.
