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.

5 stars
We thought this was a super book. I liked it was a board book, great for little hands. My daughter loved the front cover, where it showed the dad in his superhero outfit with a cutout of his head, then when you turned the next page the dad was dressed in his normal clothes. It was a lovely rhyming text about how a boy thought his dad was a super dad, for the various things he does, such as telling super jokes, scaring the monsters away and playing great games. My daughter really enjoyed it, we have read it so many times since having it. It is suitable for both boys and girls, even though the charcater is a boy, my daughter still could relate to the relationship between the boy and his dad. My daughter really enjoyed reading the book with her dad, and the bright, colourful illustrations were great. We liked the ending, wit the dad saying his son was a superhero son; very sweet. It's a book we will enjoy for a long time.

We love this book. It has a really lovely message and is a delight to read. Daddy especially loves this book!
It has great, colourful illustrations and reads really well. It's a firm bed time favourite and is holding up as my daughter grows.

This is a stunningly illustrated book and my two boys loved hearing the story about how fab dads are and identifying with the pictures. My boys loved this book and my eldest took it into superhero week at school as he loved it so much.  It was written in nice easy language but had good humour and sensitive moments thrown in. A great buy!

Although my husband said it's a little cheesy but I like the heartwarming story. It is a perfect book for daddy-son story time. We often overlook the importance of the role of the father and how much they contribute to parenting and this book reminds us, both parents and child, how much daddy does to how their love for their children.

I've read a lot of children's book but this has to be up there as one of my favourites. Whilst reading all of the things that the dad does with his child, I thought about how much it sounds like my son and HIS dad so I bet he felt the same way as he was listening. The child in the story sees his dad as the best person ever and a superhero in his eyes. The dad sees his son in the same way. It's a beautiful little book about a wonderful relationship between a father and son.

A fantastic book celebrating the special relationship between a little boy and his Superhero Dad. This has quickly become one of our favourite stories and is absolutely adored by my superhero-loving little boy. Filled with humour and excitement, it brilliantly captures the awe little boys (and girls) have for their dads. The bold comic book-esque illustrations compliment the text perfectly. It would make a great gift for any Superhero Dads out there. Five stars!

We loved this book. It made the whole family laugh and smile and it is a fantastic, comical tale. Superhero Dad is about a little boy and his Superhero dad. From Super Snoring to Super breakfasts - Superhero dad can do it all. Dads really are superheroes to their children and this is a funny yet heart melting tale of what makes any dad a superhero each and every day. This book has wonderful illustrations and lovely rhyming text making it easy to remember and a joy to pick up again and again. We thought it was Super!

Where can I start with this wonderful book?! It's a fantastic read for younger and slightly older kids alike! I love that it's a board book so more robust when in smaller hands.
The story is enthralling. It's about a little boy who sees his dad as a Superhero. The language is in the form of verse too, so it's great for getting little ones into the rhythm of rhyme.
The illustrations are extremely colourful which is great for keeping a child's interest. Both my children aged 3 years and 16 months thoroughly enjoyed this book and even after reading it many times in a row, as a parent I still love it.
I think it's a great book to have on any child's shelf and would also be a great book for a daddy and his son/daughter to read together as a bonding experience.

Superhero Dad is clearly Super Speedy Dad as well as we only won him yesterday and he's already here! Georgie hasn't put the book down since ripping open the package and there was nearly a crisis at bedtime when she thought it wasn't upstairs!
Needless to say, this has been read about 10 times already and Georgie loves doing impressions of Superhero Dad! 
The rhyming lines make is fun to read and listen to and the twist at the end it very endearing. I think it's going to be a popular book!

The book is a really great story about a father and son. All kids think that there parents are superheroes and its a nice book to show that. The storyline is fun and not to long and the pictures are bursting with colour. Its a great story for a dad to read to his son.

We have just got this from the library and we have really enjoyed reading it. 
Superhero dad reminds or boys of their daddy as he does all the same things and they could relate to it. Such fun! 
Lighthearted and fun to read.

My just-turned-2 year old loves this book. We all enjoyed the rollicking rhyming text and the simple comic style graphics, with the very engaging dad and child characters. One of her first ever spoken sentences was "come on dad, it's day!" from this book. She loves pretending to eat the stack of pancakes on the last page. My only concern is whether the page about being afraid of monsters in the dark is going to put the idea into her head as she was too young to already have that fear. Perhaps she's therefore a bit too young for it but other than that it has been a real favourite.
