About the Book

A heartwarming bilingual picture book about a young boy who learns to accept that Abuela needs to retire her super capa. 

Saturdays are superhero days. Equipped with their milkshakes and capas, Luis and his abuela can turn anything into an adventure.

But when Abuela gets sick, Luis has to learn a new way to be a hero. With some help from his sister, Luis learns that change isn’t all that bad and there are many new adventures to have, even if they look a little different.

Perfect for families experiencing sickness and loss, this engaging multigenerational story will help young children find the language to express their feelings and adjust to change. 

Simultaneously published in Spanish: La supercapa de Abuela

Critical Praise

Beautiful and full of life, this picture book is an excellent choice for gently discussing the illness of a loved one as well as sharing the magical relationship between children and their grandparents. Highly recommended for picture book collections. — School Library Journal (starred review)

A sweet ode to superhéroe abuelas everywhere. — Kirkus Reviews

Abuela's illness is no match for super hugs and a great sidekick in Abuela's Super Capa. The story's emotion-filled bilingual text and vibrant art will be both comforting and affirming for child readers who need to believe in their own superpowers. Good for everyone but, most especially, for kids worried about a sick family member. 
Heidi E.Y. Stemple, author of I Am the Storm
