Q Saves the Sun


Read Booklist's review of Q Saves the Sun.

Inspired by his father's bedtime stories, nine-year-old Qadeer Taylor transforms into the daring and powerful hero known as SUPER-Q! In his dreams, SUPER-Q must save the sun and the world itself. This is an action-oriented picture book perfect for all ages, but is targeted at children ages 6 to 10. 

Also available to libraries and schools through our distributor Brodart, Follet, and Children's Plus, Inc.

Written by Isaac Perry, Q SAVES THE SUN is more than an entertaining book to enjoy with your children (although it's that too!). It's an opportunity to inspire a generation of children with the wonderment that comes from well-told fantasy, wrapped in the positive, moving story of an Black boy whose relationship with his father is the seed of his dreams.

Q SAVES THE SUN is our way of saying our kids matter and the relationship between a young Black boy and his father is enough to send our imaginations to the stars and entertain us for years to come.
