Staff Reviews

Ciccio created a cute story about being yourself because that "something" about you shows someone how you love them. Our boy, Corey, is bullied and teased by his classmates, but when they learn the why of the cape wearing (despite the biggest bully, Billy, always taking it) you see how brave Corey really is. A classic feeling with modern sentiments, this adorably illustrated book is a must have for your shelves. — Jeanette


A warmhearted conversation starter of a book. - Kirkus Reviews

"Encouraging forgiveness and celebrating strength in numbers, this cheerful book's illustrations include surreal touches and muted colors, easing the audience into their messages." - Foreword Reviews

Every day Corey wears an orange cape. Even at bedtime. Even at school. The other children tease him, but Corey doesn't mind. After all, he wears his cape for a reason . . . Billy would rip the cape off every day. And every day, Corey would show up with a new cape. Then, one of the boys found the very noble reason why Corey was wearing a cape.

An inspiring book about courage, caring, and the hero inside everyone. For superheroes ages 5 and up.
