Mi nombre es Adam Butters. Vivo en el planeta Tierra, me gusta comer espagueti y decidí que voy a ser un SUPERHERO.
Todo el mundo ama a los superhéroes, resuelven problemas y hacen felices a las personas, y eso es bueno porque mi madre necesita animarse. Además, descubrí que antes de ser adoptado, mi verdadera madre me llamaba ACE. Entonces ahora tengo que demostrarle al mundo que soy así. Una misión a la vez …
Hilarante, conmovedora y desgarradora en igual medida, esta es una historia sobre el poder que todos tenemos de ser extraordinarios.

Críticas de prensa:
“Family love comes first in a beautiful, sensitive and utterly life-affirming story from award-winning children’s author and queen of hearts Lara Williamson…. Williamson uses her trademark blend of warmth, humour and hope as she weaves an entertaining but touchingly clever story about one boy’s journey of emotional and personal discovery. Prepare to laugh and cry in equal measure…”
“There is a heart at the centre of this book, and a touch of sentimentality but above all, an honest description of the ups and downs of family life which young readers from traditional as well as non-traditional family units will recognise.”
“This sensitive, funny story looks at what it means to love and be loved and the importance of belonging. It is so all-enveloping that you’ll feel the warmth seep through you whatever any age.”
“A touching and amusing story about belonging and the search for an heroic identity.”
“The beauty of this book is not just the path of emotions we travel along – it is the humour. The humour is there from page one and is wonderfully and delicately interwoven throughout the story… This book has a strong core – or rather a heart – and… is an honest picture of the ebbs and flows of family life”
“A heartwarming story of personal discovery, friendship, family and discovering what ‘being home’ truly means.”
“This great story is sometimes happy, sometimes funny and some parts nearly made me cry. Lara Williamson has done a brilliant job with this book; the characters seemed to come to life even though I knew they were fictional […]. This is definitely a must read for 9-12 year olds. I’m going to tell Alex, one of my brothers, that he should read this book next. (Casper, Age 11)”
