I am Superman This fictional biography of Superman launches the exciting start of the Stories Change the World series from Brad Meltzer and Chris Eliopoulos, the team behind the New York Times bestselling Ordinary People Change the World books.

For almost 80 years, the story of Clark Kent has been told by thousands of creators, and this picture book biography is the perfect way to introduce young readers to this legendary superhero. From his beginnings on his birth planet Krypton to his childhood on Earth, I am Superman focuses on how Clark Kent was super because of his actions, not just his powers.

I am Superman is one of the most personal books I have ever worked on,” says Brad Meltzer, Author of I am Superman. “This children’s book not only teaches children the legacy of Superman but tells the story of Clark Kent. Because we're all Clark Kent at heart, this is what inspired me to feature Christopher and Dana Reeve, who are real-life heroes of the spinal cord injury and paralysis community.”

This book is our way of fighting against the cynicism in America by showing kids the virtues of these heroes we love – and the power of their imaginations by featuring the creators who made them.
