Arthur’s mum has eaten a blue chilli truffle and acquired super powers. Naturally, she uses them to keep Arthur safe. But Arthur doesn’t want to look like a baby who can’t look after himself. He’s had enough, and, from now on, he will take on Gaspard, the class bully, all by himself. This first-person narrative about Arthur’s initial steps on the road to independence is as convincing as it is whimsical and funny. Sinan Hallak’s witty illustrations capture both Super Mum’s antics and Arthur’s gradual transformation.
