Who is Your Favorite Fictional Daddy?

Happy Father's Day to my husband and my dad and all those great daddies out there! 

Who is your favorite dad in a children's book? 
I have to say I love the rabbit dad in Guess How Much I Love You!

  1. Hands-down, the dad in Roald Dahl's Danny, the Champion of the World. What a great father :) There is absolutely no angst between parent and child in that book (which, I know, might not be uber-realistic, but it's so sweet), and the son adores his father with this pure, innocent love. It's kind of a beautiful thing to read.

    1. Jess, I know the book, but have not read it. I have to now! Even if it isn't ultra realistic, I like that altruistic love. I'm sappy that way. ;)

  2. Hmmm I don't have any kids so I'm not too familiar with children's books anymore, but in the adult book world, Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird for sure!

    1. Love Atticus! Any dad who stands up for what is right is the right dad for me!

  3. From TV rather than books I have to go with Burt Hummel - Kurt's father - Glee.

    If I can't go with Atticus Finch, my second choice would be Pa Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie which I re-read recently.

  4. Elaine is spot on: Burt Hummel is brilliant.

    Fiction wise I would say Arthur Weasley!

    1. Oh, Donna, that is such a good one! I wouldn't have minded being Hilary Weasley as a kid! ;)
