When a boy finds a cape (!!!) he knows it must mean he has a superpower, everyone with a cape has one. But dad is far too distracted to play, until the boy discovers he does have a superpower--a super powerful imagination!--far too powerful for dad to resist. This is a silly celebration of childhood, imagination, and the power of play.

Midwest Book Reviews - A Cape!
Kirkus Reviews - A Cape!
“A young boy searches for his superpower and finds just what he wanted all along… Kelley’s masterful use of color in the sparse illustrations makes the messaging plain for both young and old: Use your imagination, and interact with people, not devices… Here’s to many kids (and parents) finding their own superpowers. (Picture book. 3-8)”
