Superhero Mum


A humorous and heart-warming picture book written by bestselling author Timothy Knapman, with artwork by World Book Day illustrator Joe Berger!

All mums are brilliant and the mum in this story is no exception. She doesn’t wear a cape or fly to earth from outer space, but she runs for the bus so fast it feels like flying, uses her super strength to carry her daughter’s boots, coat, bag AND scooter, and can make bumps and bruises better with just a kiss. This mum really does have superpowers!

This read-aloud rhyming picture book is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, ideal for children aged 3-6 and their superhero mums.
