About the Book

By day, Dexter is just a twelve-year-old kid who wears glasses, has messy hair, likes only soft clothes that don’t make his skin itch, and loves to play with his dragon toys. He doesn’t fit in because he doesn’t always use the right words to talk to people, or he gets upset about something others don’t think is a big deal. Dexter is just different. But he’s OK with that. He understands that all the things that make him odd are because he’s meant to be different. He’s meant to be a superhero with a cape and superpowers. When the world is in trouble, Dexter puts on his cape (which makes him look cooler and feel stronger and wiser and protects him). He becomes Super Drat, a superhero with a mission to change the world. A book for young readers, The Superhero Within tells a story to help children understand that everyone is different and that’s what makes the world special.
