There’s so much to take from this empowering, positive story and characters readers will love too. Halima, Maya and Astrid are best friends, doing everything together, whether that’s eating cucumber or playing pirates. They’re excited to receive invitations to a superhero princesses themed birthday party, but when Halima says she’ll go as Pippi Longstocking or Elsa, her friends say she can’t because she doesn’t look like them or have the right hair. Unsurprisingly, Halima is upset, until Mama points out that of course she can be whoever she wants to be, and also comes up with a list of brave, strong, cool, clever people who look just like her. Halima tries out all sorts of costumes before finally choosing to go – complete with special fauxhawk hair – as her superhero princess self. After all, the world needs a new superhero!

These little friends are such lively characters in Åsa Gilland’s vibrant illustrations, Halima especially, and while her decision will prompt everyone to reveal their inner superhero, it will have particular impact on little girls who look like her.
