Kindness is a superpower! Award-winning author Holly Schindler turns her attention to superheroes in this short adventure story. Using a character Schindler created when she was eight (a hero whose superpower is kindness), The Adventures of Super Susan offers a humorous, fast-paced read in which Susan is forced to face-off with a new arch-enemy, Blaze, a boy with super-jealousy who threatens to keep anyone at South Westport Elementary from outshining him...for good. Can Super Susan melt Blaze’s heart? Or will he simply be too much for even the most powerful kindness on planet Earth? A great read-aloud for grades 3-6, and a perfect companion piece for Schindler’s Invent Your Own Superhero.
