Steve May teams up with author Phil Earle in SuperDad’s Day Off, Barrington Stoke’s latest Little Gems tale for young readers, out this month. Channelling his inner superhero powers, Steve’s full colour interior illustrations really pop from the page in this action-packed adventure.
Stanley is a normal little boy, whose dad just happens to be the greatest superhero on the planet. Six days a week, Dad saves the world from disasters, aliens, and bad guys. Friday is his day off and he always spends it with Stan. But one Friday, Dad and Stan meet a series of people desperately in need of Dad’s help! Soon Stan finds himself saving a lion stuck up a tree, rescuing a monster truck from a ditch and taking on shark-infested floodwaters. That’s right: Stan is a chip off the old (superhero) block!
