    Ages 4-8. This time Browne offers a child's paean to his dad, with excellent little-boy images and metaphors. Dad appears in striped blue pajamas, maroon slippers, and a brown plaid bathrobe of unsurpassed ugliness. Clad in this apparel, he can "walk on a tightrope" (the clothesline), "eat like a horse" (a horse in Dad's bathrobe sits before an enormous plate of food) and is "a brilliant singer" (Dad, in his usual outfit, stands next to Domingo and Pavarotti caricatures who look rather annoyed). Dad is great at soccer and wise as an owl, and he isn't afraid of anything: he sends the Big Bad Wolf slinking out the door with a gesture. Best of all, of course, the kid knows "HE LOVES ME! (And he always will)." Even the endpapers and Dad's toast are decked out in bathrobe plaid, and the offhand affection is genuinely moving as well as funny. A lighthearted companion to In Daddy's Arms I Am Tall (1997), illustrated by Javaka Steptoe, and Shelley Rotner's Lots of Dads (1997). ((Reviewed March 1, 2001)) Copyright 2001 Booklist Reviews
