From The CriticsAn ordinary-looking man in blue-striped pajamas and a plaid bathrobe is introduced on the first page of this entertaining book, accompanied by the line, "He's all right, my dad." But Dad turns out to be far more than all right. He scares away a wolf, jumps over the moon and walks along the clothesline as if it were a tightrope. His only failing is housework, an unfortunate cliché. Each of the large, surreal illustrations includes the humorous, subtle touches that make Browne's books so much fun. A tribute to an admired father by one of Britain's most innovative children's book creators.
