Supernatural Hero – Volume 1 (by Eran Gadot)
In this work by Eran Gadot, the spirit of believing in yourself is its essence. With the constant reminder that being yourself is the only way towards success, its one big boost to anyone’s self-esteem. In the 1st volume of the Supernatural Hero, we see the world through the eyes of our hero, Andy. He’s a nerd who is typically being bullied and made fun of. He’s skinny, wears glasses, often ends up talking to himself and falls in love with the prettiest girl in class. When his Grandpa dies and turns into a ghost, Andy discovers that he can actually see ghosts and communicate with them.
Don’t get the wrong idea. Even with the supernatural theme of the book, this still pulls off a fun and colorful story to boot. Watch how Andy shows the world that even someone like him can be a hero. Supernatural Hero is certainly one of the best children’s books because of its compelling story and motivating atmosphere.
