Every boy wants to be a Super Hero. It's true. No way getting around it.
You'd never believe me if I told you this book is a 5 year old boys dream book. My 5 year old loves being read to, but would rather climb trees and save the world than sit down for 15 with his own book to read out loud. The Astonishing Secrets of Awesome Man is the first book I've seen him with in bed, in the bathroom, in his hideouts, and reading after school for reading homework. He loves a good book..but this is the first one I've found him wanting to READ himself. It has power, I'm telling you!
Awesome Man is written by the Pulitzer prize winning Michael Chabon
Illustrated by a new friend of mine Jake Parker, we actually have a signed copy...which Ian proudly shows any friend who comes over. It says "You're Awesome, MAN!"
Why do I love this book?
It's a classic Super Hero book told from the perspective of a 5 year old boy. Complete with words that every boy wants to use... but in the end...you realize that Awesome Man is really just a boy, and you see him hugging his mom in the kitchen. It's absolutely Awesome.
Here's a trailor of the author talking about and reading the book.
