Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Jackson Saves an Owl by Darren Garwood & Carl Osborne

Jackson Superhero might not be a real name, but it is a story about a real boy, and as the name suggests, Jackson is far from ordinary. By day, a rare disease limits his ability to move freely, but at night he is far from grounded. When the sleeping hours come around, and weightlessness takes over, Jackson takes to the skies. He knows what it means to need the support of others, which is why when he hears a call for help, he is quickly there to lend a hand.

My Review:

This is a children’s picture book, told in a lively rhyme,

Definitely a winner for me every time!

Written for a real child called Jackson to help him see

In dreams he can be whatever he wants to be.

The story is delightful, poetic and fun,

A great read to share when the day is done.

I’ll be looking out for more by this talented pair

The story is great for young children to share.

So parents and teachers please check out this book

Starring Jackson and his adventures – please go take a look!

And encourage your youngsters to dream, too.



Author Information

Darren Garwood is the father of Jackson, a real boy living with a rare and terminal illness called Krabbe disease. Darren came up with the Jackson Superhero series because as Jackson can’t move during the day, Darren wanted to help him dream at night, when he was free to be anything he wanted to be. Jackson Saves an owl is written in lively, fantastic rhyme, and is the first in the Jackson Superhero series.
