Ten Steps to Flying Like a Superhero
An endearing take on the superhero story. When a white child, Lava Boy, meets up with a Black child, Star Girl, readers get an adventure of creativity, teamwork, and perseverance. Pilutti’s weaving of a story of friendship and loyalty with one of new horizons and problem-solving is a great lesson in collaboration and out-of-the-box thinking. Adorable drawn illustrations in a dynamic cartoon style show all the action — so much action — and a genuinely sweet resolution.
