For the best Dad in the world - our personalised story book celebrates all the reasons he's King of Dads!
Tips on writing the story
- The story is rhyming and written on behalf of the child.
- Select 1 child for all text to say I, my, etc. Select More than 1 for siblings for text to say We, our.
- The child’s name will be shown as the author and on the last page (e.g. love from George)
- Your family surname is included - if there's more than one surname, just add a hyphen eg: Harrison-Maxwell.
- On the inside front cover we print a personalised message so they can treasure the book as a keepsake in years to come e.g., "Happy Father's Day 2021 - love from Jonah".
The story below if for more than 1 child. If you select a single child, all text will change to I, me etc.
King of Dads by (children’s names)
Dear Dad, you are amazing, and we want you to know... thank you for being there and helping us grow.
You are the King of Kindness, the Emperor of Endeavours, our Guardian of Goodness and the Captain of Clever.
You are stylish and handsome, you’re no fashion fool. You are simply amazing, the Champion of Cool.
You are knowing and clever and help us each day, by teaching us lessons in your unique way.
We will always listen to your sound advice... as you teach us to live an even better life.
You are our Hero of Happiness, the Champion of Cuddles, you hug and comfort us when we get in a muddle.
You make us smile with your special tickles, and make sure our life is full of joy and giggles.
You are King of the Kitchen, and can cook up a storm, keeping us fed and happy, safe, cosy and warm.
We love all the food you give us to eat, even the vegetables, although we love treats!
Thank you dear Dad for all the time that you give, to make our house a home so we love where we live.
You are generous and giving and you spread great joy, inventing silly games and playing with toys!
You are brilliant and brave - the best Dad there is, and when you’re not with us, it’s you who we miss.
You are King of Excitement, the President of Fun! You deserve a medal… you’re our number one.
You are the reason we laugh and giggle when we play, you’re our ray of sunshine on a rainy, grey day.
You make life so exciting and help us explore, we love our adventures - and always want more!
Dad, you are incredible, thank you for being you, and doing your best to make our dreams come true.
You are numero uno, the top of our list, we can’t wait to cuddle and give you a kiss.
Dad, you rock… us to sleep each night, and make us feel safe when we’ve had a fright.
You hold us and hug us when we feel upset, you make everything better whenever we fret.
You are the King of our world, you are top of the tree, you’re very important to the (family name e.g. Harrison) family.
You are unique and special, you are one of a kind, you are the best in the world, the best Dad you could find.
Dad, we should tell you, you are better than the rest, you’re our Super Dad... the best of the best.
You are the King of our hearts, so we’ll make a toast - to the best Dad of all, who we love the most. (heart children's names)

My husband loved the book we created for him for Father’s Day. He had tears in his eyes as he read it. The book has lovely illustrations and the kids loved that they were listed as the authors of the book. I would definitely purchase products from Letterfest in the future. Thank you Letterfest for such a memorable Father’s Day!
The book was warmly received by my partner and the story is great. Only downside is that the front cover did not have my child’s full name including surname so looks incomplete on the cover
Bought this as a Father’s Day gift and it is very nice with lovely illustrations. Unfortunately mine arrived stained with a black mark on the cover. Letterfest customer services acted quickly and a replacement was received in time.
My husband loved this book and the fact it’s personalised with our sons name. Makes it really special!
Such a lovely item, something to keep forever!
