author/illustrator: Bob Graham

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? With quintessential quirkiness, award-winning author Bob Graham’s beloved picture book returns to print to tell a tale about the ups and downs of mastering your potential—all in your own good time.
