Superheroes Don’t Get Scared… Or Do They?
|I absolutely love this fun, brilliantly illustrated book. The clever rhythmical, rhyming text, is filled with the most amazing and ingenious superheroes whose wackily unique powers will really appeal to young readers!
But in laughing at their antics, we also learn the very important message – that absolutely everyone has fears – and if we face up to them then we are as brave as any super-hero. This is such an important message for us all, especially today, and it is conveyed in such a hilarious way, it is sure to be a favourite with children everywhere. An impressive debut by Kate Thompson.

Scared Maisie Brown dreams of being a fearless superhero – because they never get frightened, right? But when Dad explains that even the strongest, boldest and bravest hero can sometimes feel afraid, and that that’s perfectly fine, Maisie realises there’s a superhero in all of us.
With fun characters, rhyming text and a wonderfully relatable take-away message about normalising feelings, this heart-warming book is an amazing addition to any little hero’s bookshelf.
