The Adventures of Wrong Man and Power Girl!
(illustrated by Frank Morrison)
All he wants is to be a hero, but he's the hero no one wants! This heartwarming story shows that dads can be superheroes--as long as they have their daughters by their side to do the real rescuing.
When trouble is brewing, Wrong Man is there to make it worse. When someone needs help, Wrong Man does just the opposite of what's needed. And when situations go awry, Wrong Man helps them go awry-er. Luckily, Wrong Man's daughter is there to really save the day.
In this comic-book inspired picture book, our hero accidentally melts stinky cheese all over the city, lets sharks loose, and turns one big meteor into many little ones! But all Wrong Man wants to do is help -- and try to help he does, until he finally gets it right. He may be laden with mishaps, but Wrong Man is also full of heart. And in this fun- and adventure-filled book, readers can celebrate love and imagination even as they laugh at the silliness of it all.
School Library Journal says:
"Kids will want to pore over this hilarious romp that’s expertly executed—simply amazing"
"The book’s most wonderful feature is the positive and loving depiction of a black father-daughter superhero pair whose race is immaterial to the storyline or to their family dynamic. Young readers will undoubtedly see themselves and the adults in their lives reflected in these characters and will take delight in seeing the child protagonist as the voice of reason even as she acknowledges that her parents are right some of the time.
A lighthearted adventure story that charms and entertains. (Picture book. 3-7)"
