      This book is about a baby, but it was not a normal baby because it's parents where superheroes. Their names are Captain Lightning and Madam Thunderbolt. The superbaby was named Max and could already walk and talk. This made his parents think that he would fly in no time. His grandparents talked about how he would be a superhero as soon as he learned how to fly. They tried to teach him by throwing him in the air but he still could not fly he just floated back down to the ground. Even when Max gre [...]

      Cute little book about a boy born into a superhero family who can't fly yet. My 3 year old actually sat and listened to the whole things. She found lots of things in the pictures to look at and point out.

      Cute story of a boy born into a superhero family that takes awhile to find his wings.

      July 2017 - all the superhero action that Ben's into, plus a really sweet story (and no action/violence, for people who care about that). Bob Graham is the best.

      Didn't hate it, wasn't crazy about it. Suffers from somewhat dated looking illustrations. Basic premise is that this kid, Max, is in a superhero family but isn't flying yet. Family gets concerned and comments on this lack of flight. Max is finally ready to fly at the end of the book and the family is relieved though still not convinced he will be a superhero. There is a point where they acknowledge that he may be a small everyday sort of hero (illustrations of saving small animals). Almost any p [...]

      The importance of illustrations is made clear in this book as many of the pictures convey significant story events that are not described in the text. Using ink and watercolor, the illustrator of Max compliments the author’s text with his illustrations but, also, adds to the story by depicting events that are not specifically described or included in the text. Furthermore, some of the pages of this book begin to resemble a comic strip as multiple scenes are illustrated on each page and, often, [...]

      Max is a baby born to a superhero family. He walks and talks early, but he cannot yet fly. His family worries over this, but eventually he does what all superhero babies do, and flies.Although the illustrations are colorful and interesting, I found the layout to be very cluttered for a book written for very young children. I had to work hard to keep track of where my eyes should go next. The story was also too long and detailed in some parts. I think if the book had a more simple layout and stor [...]

      As the son of legendary superheroes Captain Lightning and Madam Thunderbolt, Max is destined to join their ranks - once he learns to fly, that is. But despite his parents’ valiant coaching and encouragement from his grandparents and friends, Max can’t seem to get off the ground. Will he ever learn to leap over tall buildings in a single bound? ( Summary)Bob Graham's illustrations in a comic book manner and the use of panels in an easy GN arrangement are great. There are fun little details to [...]

      Set out as part comic/picturebook, this is a lovely story for readers who are just taking-flight (pun intended). Although not outwardly stated, Max is under a lot of pressure to be a superhero like his family before him. He struggles to live up to those expectations but it is the loving and caring (no-pressure) attitude of his immediate family that finally allow him to be the person he wants to be. Lots of nice discussion here with Graham's lovely illustrations. It would make for a good Guided R [...]

      Superhero kid Max finally learns to fly when he forgets about himself and focuses on a baby bird in need of rescue. He doesn't "do tough things like [his] mom and dad." His mom says, "Let's call him a small hero, a small hero doing quiet deeds. The world needs more of those." Indeed! Couldn't agree more!

    12. Randie D. Camp, M.S. on said:

      The story begins with Max as a baby from a super hero family that grows into a super boyy he can't fly. His parents and grandparents are concerned because Max should be flying. Even his normal friends at school are questioning his inability to fly. Will Max learn to fly in time to save a creature in need?Cute story with amazingly detailed and action-filled illustrations.

    13. Chris Calzolaio on said:

      This picture book is about a family of super heroes. The main plot focuses on a baby who seems to be developing faster than his peers, but he still has not learned to fly. His inability to fly has really worried his parents. One day, the baby finally flies when he is faced with the challenge of catching a baby bird that if falling from her nest.

    14. Kyrie on said:

      It was an okay story. I liked the illustrations a lot and loved their lightning bolt shaped house. I'm not sure why it's on the list of 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up. There are lots of books I find equally entertaining.

    15. The Brothers on said:

      An okay story about a little boy born to super hero parents who just won't fly. Hover -yes, fly - no. That is, until he tries to save a little bird from falling out of his nest.The illustrations are really fun. Dex (20 months) really enjoyed pointing out all the dogs and birds.

    16. K. on said:

      Really, this is such a sweet book. So, we're all totally in love with this adorable super-hero family (which includes grandma & grandpa). We love the way Max turns out, and how his family just absolutely love each other.

    17. Emkoshka on said:

      A sweet little story of an ordinary boy growing up in a family of superheroes. When he does eventually come into his powers, he uses them to be 'a small hero doing quiet deeds'. As his mother says, 'The world needs more of those'. Great sentiment.

    18. Brandi on said:

      A cute picture book about the son of superheros growing up and learning new things. Longish at parts with lackluster illustrations.

    19. Julia on said:

      Cute story of an ordinary kid in a superhero family. Bonus schmoopy mom feels for a kiddo named Max :)

    20. Tanya on said:

      A fun book about a late bloomer. I have read this a couple of times. Fun for an emerging reader.

    21. Robyn on said:

      (Read with little sister as part of the "1,001 Children's Books To Read")That was a pretty neat story. Not eye-opening amazingness, but a nice story with cute names and an awesome house.

    22. Brooke on said:

      This book ran a little long, and the kids seemed to lose interest.

    23. Rachel on said:

      Fun, colourful and teaches children that not every boy or girl has to be a superhero to make a difference in life :-)

    24. Gwnhwyfer on said:

      Bob Graham makes an extraordinary family very ordinary, with the son (and grandson) of superheroes who can't fly! As always, Graham's books are delightful!

      i want to read this book because of my daughter

    26. Tracy Morton on said:

      This book is a longer story book so it is better for kindergarten-grade 2. It is a very cute story about everyone having different abilities. It is going to be a part of my superhero storytime.
