My mum's a superhero - winner

My mum is a superhero. She hears a knock at the door. And she puts her cap on. She is the 'love hero'. A new child is here that needs her special love and I'm her side kick that gets a new friend.

She uses her magic noone can see. The boy has no words. She gives him words. The boy has no toys. She gives him toys. The boy has no clothes. She gives him clothes. The boy has no mummy or daddy. My mummy helps him get a new mummy and daddy.

My mum is a superhero.


This story is so moving and there is such a strong sense of voice that the writing leapt off the page. I loved the repetitions and the idea of the mother as Superhero!
