Description

All Tom's friends really are superheroes. There's the Ear, the Spooner, the Impossible Man. Tom even married a superhero, the Perfectionist. But at their wedding, the Perfectionist was hypnotized (by ex-boyfriend Hypno, of course) to believe that Tom is invisible. Nothing he does can make her see him. Six months later, she's sure that Tom has abandoned her. So she's moving to Vancouver. She'll use her superpower to make Vancouver perfect and leave all the heartbreak in Toronto. With noidea Tom's beside her, she boards an airplane. Tom has until the wheels touch the ground in Vancouver to convince her he's visible, or he loses her forever. The tenth anniversary edition of Andrew Kaufman's perennial favourite, All My Friends Are Superheroes , includes a new catalogue of superheroes and gorgeous illustrations by Tom Percival.

Short & Sweet Read

This book is a quick read, and lots of fun. It's goofy but not too frivolous, and the superheroes that Kaufman creates (often with VERY minor super powers) are a particular joy to discover. A delightful book.
