I want to be a superhero

Humes, Breanna2020
A little girl in a homemade blanket cape wants to be a superhero, and not just any superhero, she wants to fly! Breanna, the girl in question, is a younger version of author. In the book this young Breanna asks her mum and Kabarli (nana) if wishing on a star will give her the special powers she wants. They say no, but Breanna's Pop says,'You never know unless you try,' so the four of them get in the car to find a shooting star. When the family reaches the beautiful double-page spread of Ambelin Kwaymullina's vivid and colourful Milky Way illustrations, Breanna sees a shooting star and wishes for flying powers ... but nothing happens. That's when her mother and Kabarli teach her that there's more to being a superhero than flying, and in fact doctors, lawyers, engineers and vets can all save the world in their own ways.
