The Superhero Princess/Superhjälteprinsessan

When Thandi is invited to a dress-up party by a classmate, she’s hesitant at first as to what to dress up as. Can she really pull off going as Pippi, Iron Man or Elsa from Frozen when she doesn’t even look like them! But Mom says of course she can. She can dress up as whatever princess or superhero she wants! Or even better: She can be an entirely new superhero princess, Super T! With silver boots, rainbow tights, and a glitter cape—let’s go!

A fun celebration of finding oneself through the discovery of new superheroes, princesses and role models. A story about getting to be exactly who you are in exactly the way you want to be!
