The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man

Awesome Man can shoot positronic rays out of his eyeballs, fly as straight as an arrow and hug mutant jelly! Even villains like Professor Von Evil and the Flaming Eyeballs are no match for this caped crusader. But Awesome Man also has a secret. Can you guess what it is? Brilliantly illustrated and wonderfully witty, this debut picture book from Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon perfectly captures the fantasy life of a young superhero!

“Young caped crusaders and Chabon’s adult fans alike will grin at this self-consciously witty portrait.” Publishers Weekly

“Awesome indeed.” Kirkus Reviews
