Reviews
Fans of Graham's earlier title Max (2000), about a young superhero and his parents, will be delighted to meet the newest addition to their family, a redheaded girl named Maxine. . . . Graham's customary humor is amply present.
--Kirkus Reviews

Pleasingly subverts the usual message of the superhero trope. . . Graham's humorous artwork shines. . . . Readers will hope for a third installment, and soon.
--School Library Journal

Graham's oversized picture book is infused with the sly humor and domestic warmth of his earlier outings, with the lumpy, baggily clad Thunderbolt-Lightning family comically improbable in their gravity-defying aerobatics. . . preschoolers trying new social roles on for size should find this title a comfortable fit.
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

In a text that's attuned to the unspoken emotions of young children, Graham suggests that the one thing cooler than being a superhero is having the freedom to discover who you really are. An enjoyable choice for reading aloud.
