LoveReading View on The Superhero Handbook

There’s no excuse for anyone who, having read this book from cover to cover and followed its instructions carefully, does not emerge a superhero. Contained within its pages is a complete superhero training course. Not only do you learn how to invent your superhero name, and how to choose a sidekick, but you can also have a go at some special superhero activities, such as making a mini jet-pack (you’ll need string, a straw, sticky tape and a balloon), or an electro-magnet. The superhero fun and games are very entertaining, as are the science bits, and it’s all delivered in a friendly, knowing and thoroughly engaging way. An unusual information activity book that cleverly mixes science learning with the allure of superhero-dom.  ~ Andrea Reece

A Piece of Passion from Elizabeth Jenner, Head of Children’s, Laurence King Publishing:   'Through Jason Ford’s brilliantly evocative drawings and creative activities in The Super Book for Superheroes and The Superhero Comic Kit, his superheroes have captured the imaginations of children everywhere. I am so excited to finally be able to share the next one in the series, The Superhero Handbook, with you. Now not only can you learn how to draw superheroes and create super comics, but you can learn everything you need to know to BE a superhero too! 

The book contains all you need to set yourself up as a superhero, from finding your secret identity to employing a sidekick, plus 20 innovative activities to help you do everything from making yourself invisible to learning to defy gravity. And each activity comes with a ‘Superhero Secret’ showing you the top secret science behind each one. It’ll make for a truly super summer!'
