Sophy Henn knows just what makes young children tick, and Pom Pom, the friendly panda is a little character all parents will recognise. He feels a bit left out when his friends loudly announce their super powers, he doesn’t seem to be super at all. Fortunately his friends can think of all sorts of things that Pom Pom is really good at. As much fun to look at as it is to read, this funny story is also a lovely exploration of friendship, and will reassure children that we all have our own talents, and can express them however we like. ~ Andrea Reece
Pom Pom was excited. So excited ...all his friends were coming round to play and he couldn't wait! And when they arrive in superhero costumes, Pom Pom thinks he might quite like to be super too. There's just one problem: Pom Pom isn't exactly sure what he's super AT.
We've never hidden our love for Pom Pom and just when you think you couldn't possibly love him any more he's back with a vengeance and this time he's a superhero! Presented once again in the bright block colours that have become synonymous with Sophy Henn's loveable panda character, this latest instalment of Pom Pom's adventures is another sure fire winner. Pom Pom is waiting expectantly for his friends to arrive. One by one they turn up each dressed as their own unique superhero. From Buddy the Fantastic Footballing Flash to Twinkly Twirly Tornado Bear. Each of Pom Pom's friends had found their own super talents and transformed into their own superhero. But what is Pom Pom's unique talent? Brilliant biscuit juggler? Perhaps not! Maybe he can fly and just never knew it... Another brilliantly heart warming story about friendship and finding your own unique talent, from the queen of the bold palette and deceptively simple characterisation. Sophy Henn, has undoubtedly created a future classic in Pom Pom and he will quickly adorn many bookshelves across the land. Using a gentle and humorous narrative and the most expressive panda, emerging readers will delight in the exploits of this adorable bear. Picturebooks Blogger
