Amazing Ash & Superhero Ah Ma
Written by Melanie Lee
Illustrated by Arif Rafhan
The delightful adventures of a girl and her grandmother, that touches on dementia and the superpower of family.
11-year-old Ash doesn’t have much to look forward to: maths tests, a naggy Mum, and an Ah Ma who doesn’t know much about her. That is, until she discovers something that will change her life—Ah Ma is a superhero! The best part is, Ash discovers that she has superpowers too!
Life is so much more exciting as a superhero-in-training. However, Ash can’t help but notice that Ah Ma sometimes gets a little absent-minded while showing her the ropes. Growing up and growing old is never easy — and all the more perplexing when secrets and superpowers are added to the mix. Amazing Ash & Superhero Ah Ma is a funny and heartwarming story about family and acceptance.
Read if you: grew up knowing that if your parents always said no, Grandma would always say yes.
