About the Books...
Sally Rippin Presents would like to introduce you to Super Moopers. Written by writer/producer/actor Fiona Harris with art by Scott Edgar (Tripod), the series launches with four books that each introduce the first four characters from Moopertown: Musical Markus, Nervous Nellie, Dramatic Dom and Giggling Gertie. Once introduced, we gain an insight into the Mooper’s unique trait, which at first is viewed as a hindrance but eventually transforms them to superhero status, hence Super Mooper. The series highlights that our differences are what make us unique and reiterates that we are all capable of being superheroes when we see the best in ourselves. The Super Moopers books are a bridge between an illustrative picture book and junior fiction, using the language of an early reader, but are humorous, character-driven stories children will engage with and cherish. Inspired by the well-loved classic series of Mr Men, Dr Seuss and the Smurfs, Super Moopers is funny, positive and affirming for people of all ages.
