Publisher Review

Each page is an absolute delight * Carousel * 'The book's biggest triumph is that even kids with no knowledge of its various pop culture references will still have loads of fun with the comic speech-bubble text and the clever... Readers and almost-readers will pore over this, and they'll find a new joke every time.' * Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books * 'Utterly enjoyable and a wonderful source of bright, fun inspiration.' * North East Nerd * 'Matty Long has dug deep into his magical imagination to create a world where every page delights the senses and makes you wonder what craziness is going to appear on the next page.' * Danny Pearson, * 'Long fills nearly every page with details that will keep young readers engaged and interested' * Kirkus Reviews * 'Long's illustrations are packed to the gills with magical creatures and goofy details, and readers will pore over them with glee ... With no agenda other than taking whimsical fun to the max, kids will flock to this super-duper-smiley adventure' * Julia Smith, Starred review in Booklist * 'The book hosts a wealth of mad characters ... What is not to love?' * Magpie That Book Blog * 'Super is an explosion of ideas and colour all held together by a love of the fantasy genre.' * Sam Tyler, The BookBag * 'This is a delightful picture book with a lot of action taking place on each page ... It's a joy to read.' * Jayne Howarth, Evening Gazette * 'I'm not sure who will get more enjoyment out of this one - the 'toddlers' billed as its target audience or those older readers/adults who are the book's mediators to the very young.' * Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub * 'Irreverent fantasy romp' * Top Sellers List, The Bookseller *
