Great Kids' Books About Superheroes (and Supervillains!) - Planet ...

readers are introduced to superfab, who has a super-fabulous walk-in closet (like the make-you-jealous kind!). but the style points superfab gains are lost when he’s constantly late to save the day. superfab is upset but knows something needs to change. so the next time he’s called, he decides to change his costume only three times. and this ability to maintain a balance between efficiency and high fashion is what ultimately allows superfab to save the day!

a nice read-aloud book, superfab raises issues of gender and prompts discussions about how superfab disrupts traditional understandings of what a superhero looks like.
