Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Harper’s interactive, self-described “graphic novel” pits a pint-size teddy bear–like superhero against a roaring, fang-toothed monster. The hero announces that he’s unafraid of the monster “Because I have a superpower.” “Can you run faster than a speeding train?” the monster asks. Turning a wheel makes the two adversaries chase each other, but beneath a flap, the hero admits that’s not it. What’s his actual power? He’s a cutie patootie—and he can shrink the monster down so he’s cute, too. In books like Cupcake and Pink Me Up, Harper demonstrated that she knows a thing or two about cute; now she shows it’s about being more than a pretty face. Ages 4–8. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
This book begins with the stomping, thumping and roaring made by a large blue monster with three legs and spikes on the ends of his ears, but it does not frighten the tiny hero. "Aren't you afraid?" asks the monster. No. He is not afraid. The monster is disappointed. Is the cute little hero super strong? No. Can he run fast? No. Does he have a super power? No, he only has the power of cute. The monster laughs at the power of cute, but surprise! Cute has the power to shrink the monster and make him as small Cute himself is, but he can't make him big again! The monster cries, but the only thing Cute can do now is take him home to introduce him to all the other cute little monsters living there.
