Every super hero gets his powers from somewhere. The young hero of this book, Rocco, thinks his abilities come from his shock of red hair, and the longer it gets, the stronger he becomes. He even has a posse of super friends with wild hair of their own. Our hero is unstoppable--until the day he's dragged to the super evil villain's lair and robbed of his powers. How will he face his friends? Will he ever regain his super hero-ness? A girl who has been watching all along offers the gang a chance to save the day and get their groove back.

With bold images that burst with energy from white backgrounds and narration as earnest as Superman himself, SUPER HAIR-O AND THE BARBER OF DOOM is a feel-good and funny book for emergent comic book fans and parents who grew up on them.

A boy fears that he has lost his super powers after a villain captures him and cuts the hair that he believes is the source of his strength.

& Taylor

Cute book, with a kind and clever sister that truly saves the day for the shorn superheroes!

Rocco's images are imaginative, silly, and pleasing to the eye. His pictures show that he is well-versed in comic books, even choosing to emulate comic book printing with backgrounds that have pixelated dots, giving him his own little take on Roy Lichtenstein.

This book was really funny!

This is offically one of my favorite authors. He writes in a way to encourage reluctant readers. Using words that are actually advanced, but with a layout that you don't realize. The illustrator did an excellent job of using black and white as an impact color. Also the ethnic diversity without being obvious is wonderful.
