Today I’d like to share with you a book that Faye Rogers (who usually contacts me about Clink Street books, but this is one of her independent PR jobs) told me about. I haven’t got time this month to review it, unfortunately, but I thought I’d share it with you all. As you can see, I’m part of a blog tour with several other bookbloggers sharing this book. Most of them will have reviews if you’d like to see what they think.
Information about the book

Genre: Picture Book
Publisher: Untold Books
Jackson Superhero might not be a real name, but it is a story about a real boy, and as the name suggests, Jackson is far from ordinary. By day, a rare disease limits his ability to move freely, but at night he is far from grounded. When the sleeping hours come around, and weightlessness takes over, Jackson takes to the skies. He knows what it means to need the support of others, which is why when he hears a call for help, he is quickly there to lend a hand.
Darren Garwood is the father of Jackson, a real boy living with a rare and terminal illness called Krabbe disease. Darren came up with the Jackson Superhero series because as Jackson can’t move during the day, Darren wanted to help him dream at night, when he was free to be anything he wanted to be. Jackson Saves an owl is written in lively, fantastic rhyme, and is the first in the Jackson Superhero series.
