Small Publishers' Children’s Book of the Year, ABIA 2017


After the success of My Nanna is a Ninja and My Pop is a Pirate, Damon Young and Peter Carnavas have a high-flying new title: My Sister is a Superhero.

Some sisters glide on scooters

next to lanes of tooting cars.

But my sister is a superhero …

she races rockets around stars.

All sisters are different. But what if your sister was really different? What if your sister was a superhero?

A spectacular picture book celebrating our invincible sisters and the incredible love, laughter and adventure they bring into to our lives. A must for every family and library.

Praise for the book:

"Young’s alliterative style, rhythm and rhyme make this text a delight to read aloud... Highly recommended." - Children's Book Council of Australia
