The pictures are extraordinary and unforgettable and celebrate dads in a way few books do

It's humorous and charming. Dads and kids alike will love it

Delightfully simple but visually impish

Literary Review

For sheer illustrative wit, Anthony Browne is unsurpassed

The Times

Anthony Browne is a sublime master of the visual pun

Independent on Sunday

The Magritte of the pre-schoolers, Browne's illustrations are among the most distinctive and surreal of any children's artist. A beautiful tribute to a very special dad in a dressing gown

The Scotsman

A celebration of all things "dad" from the quirky to the moving

Aberdeen Evening Express

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
