About the Author

Michaël Escoffier: Michael Escoffier was born in France in 1970. Raised by a family of triceratops, he discovered his passion for writing and telling stories at a young age. He lives in Lyon with his wife and two children.

Kris Di Giacomo: Born in Brazil of American parents, Kris Di Giacomo is a popular children's book illustrator who has lived in France for a long time. After living in the US for a while she moved to France, where teaching English to young children and discovering French picture books were the triggers that led her


"Escoffier rounds up the story with a warmhearted, love-affirming twist that could make The Day I Lost My Superpowers a contender for best book for Mother's Day; it turns out that superpowers run in the family." --New York Times

"In an import that is high on zest, a child and her blithe conviction that she has superpowers both take an abrupt tumble . . . Executed on spacious expanses of white or rich tan, they depict the ebullient child engaged in all sorts of delicious mayhem." --Kirkus Reviews

"Finding great superhero-themed books makes me especially happy. . . Big bold illustrations and a clever story make this a particularly super option for a Comic Book Month story-time." --My Friend Lucy

"I love picture books where the narrator is telling a different story than the pictures, and this one works particularly well. Escoffier has created a great protagonist here, a child who sees the potential for wonder everywhere, particularly in themselves. Just take a lot of imagination and anything at all is possible, even turning invisible. . . Funny, honest and a treat, this picture book will be celebrated by any child who owns their own cape." --Waking Brain Cells

"I just finished reading The Day I Lost My Superpowers and was grinning from ear to ear." --Smart Books for Smart Kids

"The book's quiet quirkiness points toward its status as a French import, though the ending--the supergirl, injured, is fixed with a kiss by her equally super mom--is universal indeed." --Booklist
