When Chase’s alarm goes off on the morning of his birthday, he can hardly wait to get the celebration started—his mom’s famous pancakes, all of the presents and, of course, cake. He’ll even “tolerate” a hug from his little sister, Amelia.
But when he saunters into the kitchen, it’s not pancakes he smells, but the lingering scent of his mom’s perfume as she leaves for yoga class without so much as a Happy Birthday! Instead, Chase finds his first errand, in the form of a haiku.
As the day—and his list of errands—drags on, Chase doubts anyone has remembered his birthday, which makes him sad, even if he is learning an awful lot about biotechnology. What surprises are in store?
The Chase “Superman” Duffy graphic novels chronicle the adventures of a young track and field athlete as he navigates his way around his grandfather’s Alberta farm to learn about rapeseed, canola, the transition from one seed to another, and the innovators behind the country’s only true Canadian-made crop.
Written and illustrated for 8 to 11-year-olds, the stories are part historical fact, part fantasy, relying on a child’s belief in “perhaps.”
