Everything in Stanley’s life is normal. His house, his sister, his mum, his dog…everything except his dad. His dad is a superhero and a tired one at that. Stanley is looking forward to spending some time with his dad but unfortunately things that need fixing and problems that need solving don’t have days off and there are no end to the people who need help. With cats stuck in trees, some major plumbing problems and a monster of a tyre problem the trip to the park to play on the swings and eat ice-cream looks like it will never happen and Stanley finds himself having to take desperate actions to stop his dad from having to go to work.
An enjoyable and lively read about a special relationship between father and son. This delightful little chapter book is big on humour, big on adventure and big on heroes and it is the perfect fit for smaller hands. The chapters are short, there are plenty of colourful illustrations and there are delightful extras in the form of superhero themed jokes (inside the front cover) and a ‘What kind of superhero are you’ quiz (inside the back cover).
Recommended for 6+.
