WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING
"What a "super" find! Even Superheroes Get Diabetes is the coolest diabetes-related book for children.
Not corny. Not striving (in an obvious way) to be educational. Just a fun read that's witty and brought
to life with the most beautiful comic book-style color illustrations. Truly, this is a book that any
child, not just kids with diabetes, would enjoy."
-- The Diabetes Blog
"...an engrossing story that keeps even kids without diabetes hanging on every word."
-- Diabetes Health
"...it's about how to find strength and power in any situation, under any circumstances. Through humor
and imagination, children and families will find important lessons about acceptance, and overcoming
adversity within its pages."
