KIRKUS REVIEW

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s…Superfab! 

The best-dressed bunny member of the superhero world is ready to thwart crime, flout danger, save those in trouble and capture villains—but only after finding the right outfit, which naturally can be very time consuming. Since going through his walk-in closet for just the right costume can lead to extreme lateness, it looks like Superfab will never be first on the scene to show his true colors. When the calls for help stop coming in, Superfab is supersad—until the phone rings with news that a new monster is in town. All of the other superheroes have failed, and it looks like only a fashion-conscious champion of good can hope to prevail! Brightly colored pencil illustrations show the brave young rabbit as he proclaims, “Justice and good taste are going to save the day!” and becomes a conquering hero by using his super (and very fashionable) gloves, even managing to make a new friend in the process. Young listeners will giggle along with the gentle humor and enjoy the mild suspense in this anything-but-stereotypical depiction of how important it is to be yourself.

Up, up and away! (Picture book. 3-6)
