Today I am very excited to be on the blog tour for a very special book. The book is Jackson Saves an Owl by Darren Garwood.
About the Book
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.
There is also a brilliant trailer for this superb book – https://t.co/pLGc9vAOnc
I read this book with my daughter one evening and she loved it.
The book has some very great illustrations, which my daughter thought looked great, and I felt really made the story perfect.
The book itself is a beautifully written book, with nice short sentences, which my daughter read some of the words to (she is nearly 5 so learning to read) and the way the book is written made her want to re-read it the next night.
One of the things that makes this book so special is the fact that it is based on a real young boy who is very poorly, but who’s dad wrote the book to show him, and other young children, that they can be whatever they want to be.
I really loved this book and am so privileged to have been asked to be on the blog tour for such a special book to help a little boy.

About the Author
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.
