Superfab Saves the Day

By Bérengère Delaporte and Jean Leroy

From 4 to 7 | 40 pages

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.
