At first glance, the daddy in this book seems to be quite average. He cooks, cleans, and plays games with his young son. Like most dads, he doesn't always win and he isn't always right, but in the imaginative eyes of the little boy narrating this sweet story, his daddy is a hero in every way. From capturing and locking up outlaws, to battling greedy dragons, and putting mo ...more
