illustrated by Ethan Long

A young child starts off this laugh-out-loud picture book by listing all the ways his dad is NOT a superhero: he can't leap tall buildings, run faster than a speeding bullet, or shoot webs out of his wrists.
Each spread illustrates how Dad doesn't have super powers but is still a hero at heart. The sweet ending depicts all the cool-if not super-activities Dad does do with the child, like throwing a baseball, playing checkers and going toy shopping.
Ethan Long's spot-on artwork perfectly accompanies this super funny and super sweet story.
Praise for Ethan Long:
A nicely illustrated tale that speaks volumes about the bond between a dad and his son. . . a great story that will be perfect as a gift for any dad or son." -The New York Journal of Books
