I won this book in a goodreads drawing.

A kid finds a cape that lets him fly. He almost immediately loses it, and gets into conflict with his entire neighborhood trying to get it back. Somewhat humorous.

What a nice surprise! This little book popped to the top of my tbr list just in time for me to take it with me on a visit to Wisconsin, where I have a couple of grand nephews just the right age for it.

"Hi, Leo! Hi, Warren! Oh, all right, Lorelei. Sit on Auntie Cookie's lap. You can hear it, too."

This brightly colored tale of a flying piece of red cloth is a delight. The cape comes out of nowhere, landing on the narrator's big brother as he sits outside one day. It takes him on a day full of

Cute children's book

This book was about a boy who was trying to be a hero with a magical cape's help. Most of his hero stuff didn't involve the cape, but he managed to help anyway. This book teaches children that they don't need super powers to be a hero.

Loved this!!!

Excellent book for kids!!! What's crazy is that the boy in this story did more heroic actions without the cape.

This wonderful book is perfect for encouraging your young children or grandchildren to read. Enough of a story and nice pictures to keep their interest, but of enough difficulty reading to stretch their vocabulary and make the assistance or involvement of the caring adult a must. Perfect with hot chocolate : )

Another fabulous read from the author. Having read A Dream, I was keenly waiting for another book by the author. The illustrations are lifelike and draw your immediate attention. Thus when I received a copy of A Hero's Cape, my excitement knew no bounds. My expectations were high when reading the book and the book didn't disappoint me. I was rather feeling lost when the book finished, since I felt it finished too soon. This is the magic of Cory's books. The illustrations add a charm to the book ...more

A little boy is very excited when a cape that can make him fly drops into his life. He starts planning how he can be a superhero when a wind sweeps the cape out the window. In his chase, the boy stops and helps many others along the way he finds in need. Does he really need a cape to be a superhero?

A cute story with a fantastical cape and one madcap chase as a mechanism to point out that you don't really need superpowers or a magical cape to be a superhero. The copy I received from the author

A delightful story of a boy wanting to be a hero when he mysteriously finds a magic cape. Even though he does become a hero it is not in the sense he may have expected.
A great book based around a great moral on how good deeds, and not a cape, makes you a true hero in life.
The simple narrative told from his brothers point of view makes the story more endearing to read.
Beautiful artwork in the form of illustrations brings the story to life and adds extra charm to an already engaging storyline.

I read this book to my twin boys, and they loved the story and the pictures. I love their are twins in this story. This is a simple kids book. The author send me a free link to this book, but we liked it so much a brought the kindle edition (so my daughter can have it on her kindle to read it anytime). This is 100% my opinion.

Great Unexpected Ending

I read this story with my six year old and we loved it. In her words (without giving the ending away) she loved how he was able to help people along the way and the ending was her favorite part.

Review of A Hero’s Cape

This is a wonderful children’s book. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. I won this book through a giveaway on Goodreads website.

I received a free review copy of this book.
Cute and colorful! The art looks inspired by both woodblock prints and Doraemon manga. I didn't expect the talking animals! The happy ending, though, I did expect. I still kind of wonder where the cape came from!

Cute children's book about helping others!

I won this in a giveaway. I like the message that being a hero involves helping others. That part is good, as is having characters who look East Asian. I'm not sure why the brother is doing all the helping, while the sister's role is to declare that her brother is a hero. Why doesn't she get to help, too? I understand not being able to declare good traits for one's self, as that would be presumptuous, but I still cringe at having a female character be close to invisible, her only role to declare ...more

I won the Kindle version of this picture book through First Reads. It is a cute story about a little boy that finds a magic piece of red cloth. He keeps losing it as he helps others. It is a good way to show empathy and kindness in action.
