Review:

"A magical, funny book about finding heroes."

." . . a warm, outstanding story that salutes teachers everywhere . . ."

"This delightful story challenges readers to expand their definition of hero."

"Victoria author Troy Alan Maxwell Wilson and illustrator Dean Griffiths of Duncan, B.C. pepper an inspirational story with sly humour."

"A terrific book not only for comic-book lovers and children interested in writing, but for any child who may need help boosting his or her self-esteem."

"Dean Griffiths' pen and ink illustrations are brimming with humourous details . . ." "This is a wonderful tribute to teachers and their superhero talents."

"A wonderful story about finding your own voice and those special people who make a difference in our lives." "Griffiths 'super' illustrations are warm and fun."

"Wilson's first book is an entertaining and thought-provoking read for children. His premise that everyone can develop their own superpowers is a wonderful message for young readers."
