The story behind the stories
- Words by Darren Garwood -
Jackson Superhero might not be a real name, but it is a story about a real boy, and as the name suggests, Jackson is far from ordinary.
From birth, the real Jackson was like every other child. He passed all the regular milestones like talking, eating by himself, and generally enjoying life. But just after his first birthday Jackson started to lose key skills. This is when he was diagnosed with Krabbe disease and wasn't expected to live beyond the age of two.
By mustering all his strength, and with a lot of love from his mum and dad, Jackson is still doing well at age of eight. The moral of the story is that while he may be limited during the day, in the evening, when he dreams, Jackson can be anything he wants to be.
We believe this fantastic story of a young boy going above and beyond, will bring inspiration to parents and children who, for one reason or another, have to muster their superpowers on daily basis. This book is for those who have to push back against daily challenges, for whom comfort and happiness require extra patience, strength, and love. Just as importantly, it's for those who rely on the support and inspiration of others. No matter what kind of day you are having, we believe these books, still will make you smile.
