The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man Paperback

Illustrated by Jake Parker

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Meet Awesome Man - a brand new superhero, who's out of this world!

The first picture book from Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon perfectly captures the fantasy life of young superhero fans.

Awesome Man can shoot positronic rays out of his eyeballs, fly as straight as an arrow and hug mutant Jelly!

Even villains like Professor Von Evil and the flaming Eyeballs are no match for this caped crusader.

But Awesome Man also has his secret...Can you guess what it is?

Review by

This is a gorgeous book that will have appeal to fans of superheroes everywhere! Awesome Man is just that, awesome. There is a retro feel to the illustrations, they are bright, colourful and eye catching. I'm impressed that he can 'shoot positronic rays' out of his eyeballs, and battle with the bad guys with his 'awesome dog' called Moskowitz. But where does Awesome Man go at night? Just where is his fantasic 'Fortress of Awesome'? Waiting there is a plate of Cheddar cheese on crackers and chocolate milk.... yum! Might be useful as a read aloud as well.
