Superhero Booklist

This is a popular theme with teachers and children in KS1. There are quite a number of picture books, such as Bob Graham’s Max which challenge the macho superhero image although the shadow of Clark Kent and his transformation into Superman sometimes stands behind them. Most of the superheroes in children’s books are, like their adult counterparts, cape-clad boys. But Origami Girl, Super Daisy, Rita the Rescuer and Wonder Doll are fighting back!
