"I Want to be a Superhero by Breanna Humes is a lighthearted story about the author’s dream of being a special superhero as a little child. Written by the author when she was just eight years old, the story is easily relatable to audiences of all ages, especially the younger ones – we had all wanted to be a superhero at some point in our childhood, or perhaps, even as adults! It consists of a beautiful underlying message, that we should never stop dreaming, no matter what others say or how impossible our dreams may be. The book also invites its readers to reflect upon and discuss what it means to be a superhero, especially in today’s society.
The language used in the story is simple and easily understood, even by younger audiences. The illustrations, being colourful and childlike, are especially appealing, as if they were drawn by a child, which fits in perfectly with the overall concept of the book – a story written by a child, accompanied by illustrations that are drawn to depict those done by children.
This is an especially heartwarming story that will appeal to anyone, child or adult, who has ever dreamed of being a superhero."
