Jack was getting ready for his first day at kinder. He wouldn't know anyone. How would he make friends? Then Jack had an idea. He put on his red-and-blue suit, his yellow cape, his special socks, his gumboots and, last of all, his shiny black mask. Super Jack was ready for action! And all the other kids loved him! But what will Jack do when his costume needs a wash? Will his new friends still like him when he's just Jack? 'A great book for little kids about to start kindergarten or school.'
