The days when a towel was a cape and you were a superhero...brought back lots of nice memories.

Even superheroes get bored, have to deal with the weather and feel misunderstood. Cute book.

I received this book as an ARC from Enchanted Lion Books in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

This book was beyond adorable and I loved every single page and word. A lot of little children will go crazy for this book due to the popularity of superheroes and the action stories that go with them. I also love the cross reference with reality such as loving and not loving the weather and hating impostors and how adorable that was stru

For all the mini heroes I meet everyday, this is the book for you.

It's a cool and fun book I think that many children can relate with it.

Thank you Edelweiss+ for the DRC.

About a bunch of poorly behaved rotten children being presented in well illustrated, ironic way. I imagine the parent is supposed to laugh, but I was too busy trying to explain why the kids were so sad/frustrated/“misunderstood” in the drawings instead of matching the words being read about them being “heroic”.

A tongue in cheek description of what it is like to be a mini hero and the challenges they face.

Some of these pages I found humorous, other pages just made me scratch my head (I blame translation issues). Overall, it was probably a 2.5 for me so I'll round it up to a 3.

November 2019 - I checked this one out to see if I want to purchase it for the library, and I always love Tallec's illustrations but wanted more story (and I think most superhero fans want more action than introspection, and this is more thoughtful than action-packed). ...more

I like Olivier Tallec’s books. I read them with great enthusiasm, but this one failed short I’m afraid. The text was brilliant, the illustrations were cute but the two did not quite fit.

Life according to children who think they are their favorite superheroes. You can really imagine them thinking some of these things.

Felt very unfinished and missing elements. A cute concept but I think the author missed the target.
