All Tom's friends really are superheroes. There's the Ear, the Spooner, the Impossible Man. Tom even married a superhero, the Perfectionist. But at their wedding, the Perfectionist was hypnotized (by ex-boyfriend Hypno, of course) to believe that Tom is invisible. Nothing he does can make her see him. Six months later, she's sure that Tom has abandoned her. So she's moving to Vancouver. She'll use her superpower to make Vancouver perfect and leave all the heartbreak in Toronto. With no idea Tom's beside her, she boards an airplane. Tom has until the wheels touch the ground in Vancouver to convince her he's visible, or he loses her forever. The tenth anniversary edition of Andrew Kaufman's perennial favourite, All My Friends Are Superheroes , includes a new catalogue of superheroes and gorgeous illustrations by Tom Percival.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday superheroes; just like us! A brilliantly thoughtful book, full of imaginative characters with equally imaginative superpowers! I love that the conclusion of the story happens within it's last moments with a nice twist; perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We are all superheroes in our own right If my love for "Born Weird" was any indication, I knew I was going to enjoy one of Andrew Kaufman's earlier popular works, "All My Friend Are Superheroes." Disappointed I was not. This 10th Anniversary Edition included more superhero profiles - anecdotes on who they are and what their superpower consisted of. They could be the most mundane, or be of the consequential use, but these powers of theirs ultimately reminds us just how human they are because of how they use and perceive their special abilities. The couple dozens of the 249 superheroes in Toronto introduced to us really are reflective of real-life people around us from different slices of society. Besides that, what "All My Friends Are Superheroes" really centers on is a relationship that has run into an obstacle, and the lengths both sides will go to, if they were willing to. Its whimsical presentation only added a delightful quirk to a romantic story. Bravo Andrew Kaufman, and that imaginative mind of yours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Little bit disappointed Some cool ideas, but a super-short book. I thought it was a full length novel and it's more like a long short story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laughed out loud! I don't remember the last time I laughed out loud while reading a book, but this one did it. And what a fantastic ending to an amazing story with a unique and quirky concept. I saw alot of myself on these pages.
