Superfab Saves the Day

by Bérengère Delaporte & Jean Leroy

tagged: self-esteem & self-reliance, clothing & dress, humorous stories
Description

Meet Superfab: the best-dressed superhero around. He's got a walk-in closet, an extensive collection of outfits, and fabulous style to boot. The only problem is, he can't leave his house to go fight crime until he has the perfect outfit on – and sometimes that takes awhile. It often takes so long that by the time he arrives at the scene of a crime, another superhero has already gotten the job done. Superfab finds himself less and less in demand, until one day he gets called to help out in a crisis where all other superheroes have been defeated – and he discovers that his exquisite sense of style is just the weapon he needs to beat (and befriend) this particular monster.

This original take on the superhero story will have readers rooting for the underdog and celebrating Superfab's unique pizazz. Whimsical illustrations show off the stylish side of this quirky and loveable character, who knows the best way to save the day is to be true to yourself.

Editorial Reviews

"Phoenix loved it, giggled the whole way through."

— The Globe and Mail

"In Superfab, this team has created an insouciant, stereotype-defying hero who's as comfortable striking coy, runway-ready poses as he is flying into the heat of battle."

— Publishers Weekly

"An unlikely type of hero, Superfab is amusing and will elicit more than a quick giggle from children. The illustrations beg a second read to fully capture the mischief and mayhem throughout the book."

— School Library Journal

"Bright pencil illustrations perfect;y complement this humorous tale."

— School Library Journal

"The eye-catching drawings dominate as each page is filled with colourful, whimsical and humorous illustrations... A fun read aloud in an elementary classroom and useful for an art lesson."

— Resource Links

"[Superfab's] quest for the swankiest ensemble should ring a bell for any parent with an opinionated tot. A great read-aloud."

— Booklist

Superfab Saves the Day

An unlikely superhero saves his city from destruction by being true to himself and embracing his super style.

SuperFab is a superhero, one who is fussy about the outfit he wears when called upon to save the day. This book is a good springboard into arts-based activities where students can illustrate a new costume for the character, or where students can become SuperFab and be interviewed in character by the media who want to learn about his adventures fighting crime.
