Sadie is honest, sporty, can play for hours on her own on her parents’ farm, has a strong sense of justice, and has an amazing sense of smell. She has just started big school, together with her two best friends Mick and Robin. And that’s pretty exciting in itself, but suddenly her world is turned upside down (sometimes quite literally) when she finds out she is a superhero and can fly with her scooter. And now – with a nose that helps her smell out trouble and a conviction to face it without any doubts – she is Super Sadie!
Girls are just as good superheroes as boys, and it was time that more books were written about it. Sadie proves that you can help people and fight for justice with smart thinking, decisive action and, yes, superpowers. And she does all of this with a good dose of humour and compassion.
