All mums are brilliant, and the mum in this story is no exception. She doesn't wear a cape or fly to Earth from Outer Space, but she runs for the bus so fast it feels like flying, uses her super strength to carry her daughter's boots, coat, bag AND scooter, and can make bumps and bruises better with just a kiss. This mum really does have superpowers!
Timothy Knapman is the author of Superhero Dad and The Winter Fox. He has written lots of picture books including Dinosaurs in the Supermarket, Mungo and the Spiders From Space (and its sequels), Eleanor's Eyebrows and Guess What I Found in Dragon Wood. He also writes fiction and non-fiction for children, and his books have been translated into fifteen languages. In his spare time, Tim writes plays and musicals, because on stage, as between the covers of a book, the real and the fantastical can collide, and that is where all great storytelling comes from.
