Description

"It's time you met one of your most important superpowers..."

The Captain is disappointed when Ollie feels like laughing at his clumsy classmate Adam, and decides that it's time to introduce him to one of the four super superpowers, Empathy. Empathy transports Ollie into Adam's shoes and teaches him how to understand and share Adam's feelings. But with Empathy comes great responsibility, and the chance for Ollie to return to the library to earn his first Captain's stripe. Can Ollie use his superpowers to win the golden stripe and help Adam to overcome the bullies?

Reviews

'Another awesome Ollie story has emerged. Ollie can now help children get to grips with empathy and learn how to step into another's shoes to see the world from their perspective. Empathy is so essential to helping create a better society with understanding and compassion. The more children who can understand this, the more hope for our future. I for one will be using and recommending Ollie as a teaching aide for many years to come.'
- Nicki Proietti, Inclusion Manager, St Luke's Primary School

'The Ollie and His Superpowers series is a great vehicle to use to educate, empower and challenge both young and old to think about difficult issues, including bullying, anxiety and other associated concerns. As a Police Officer working in schools, this book has been an invaluable resource to use to develop emotional intelligence, improve self esteem and to assist young people to develop confidence in themselves. Alison Knowles offers a simple approach to dealing with what, at times, can be complex issues, in a well written story.'
- S. Herbert, Police Officer

'Used with a therapist or teacher, this could be very useful in helping to understand other people's feelings.'
