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.

Take a look inside

“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.
