The Superhero Princess

When Thandi is invited to a dress-up party by a classmate, at first she isn’t sure what she is going to dress up as. Can she really pull off going as Pippi, Iron Man or Elsa in Frozen? She doesn’t even look like them! But Mom says of course she can. She can dress up as whatever princess or superhero she wants! Or even better: She can be an entirely new superhero princess, Super T! Silver boots, rainbow tights, glitter cape — let’s go!
