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!

What the Critics Said

“Joe Berger’s illustrations have a lovely fifties feel and the message is realistic; even super-mums are fallible.”

– Alex O’Connell, The Times, Children’s Book of the Week

“A joyful story for mums and daughters to share together anytime.”

– Lucy Russell, Carousel

“Youthful and ponytailed, with a retro scarf around her neck, Superhero Mom in Joe Berger’s pictures throws off stars and rainbows like a human sparkler.”

– Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal (US)

“Knapman and Berger spin a young girl’s ordinary routine so that it seems her mother must be a superhero… Rainbow-bright colors, dots, stripes, and stars fill the pages, befitting the superhero theme.”

– Kirkus Reviews (US)

“The child n”arrator in this spunky picture book acknowledges that many mothers are special, but she believes that her mom—who sports a high ponytail and rocks red Chuck Taylors—is a superhero.”

– Publisher’s Weekly (US)

“This is such a great message for young girls to hear.”

Youth Services Book Review (US)

“It’s great to see a book that celebrates mom for being present, involved, and loving.”

– The Roarbots (US)

“This would make the perfect gift for a mother or a child, but remember – a book is for life, not just for Mother’s Day!”

– Library Girl and Book Boy (blog)

“A fun read-aloud at storytime and solid addition to Mother’s Day–themed books.”

– School Library Journal (US)
