Meet Leo! Leo is an exceptional little boy. Leo is a farm boy that lives up in the mountains with his parents. He is an extraordinary little boy. Looking at Leo, you would say that he was a different little boy. He was kind and gentle and cared a lot about the things that surrounded him. Leo was born with no hair. Not having hair never bothered him. Although Leo was young, he had a lot of strength for a little boy. He had big hands and feet, and some may say he looked a little clumsy. Leo was mighty, but he was kind and gentle too. Leo didn’t realize how much strength he had! Leo thought that he was just like any other boy.
Leo has always wanted a friend, one that would share his passion for saving the world. But his parents kept him confined to the mountains for his safety. Then one day, fate takes an extraordinary turn and brings Leo face-to-face with his passion for helping care for others in the form of a new friend and partner!
This friend and partner is Lucas, a flying horse. Lucas was not an ordinary horse, but a clumsy-looking horse. His face looked like a donkey’s face, and he had tiny wings. The horse's features didn’t bother Leo. He thought that Lucas was beautiful no matter what.
I created Leo & Lucas to show how Leo’s desire to help people and animals that are in trouble drives him to become a warrior! I also wanted to show children that just because you are different, you can still achieve great things. Leo & Lucas were different, but the love and compassion they have for each other unites them as a mighty team. Children have a special place in my heart, and through my books, I hope to teach children to believe in themselves and that they can accomplish anything as long as they have the desire to do it!
Leo & Lucas set an example of caring, friendship and doing the right thing. This incredible team speaks to the heart of children so that they can find love and compassion with friends no matter how different they might be.
What Is A Superhero?
According to Wikipedia, ‘A superhero is a heroic stock character, typically possessing supernatural or superhuman powers, who is dedicated to fighting the evil of their universe, protecting the public, and battling super-villains.’
Usually, a superhero has a recognizable costume and sometimes a mask, has a code name, and sometimes a potent weapon they use to help them defend themselves. Superheroes may be regular people who lead an ordinary life. They may even be unpopular among their peers, yet in their magical form of superhero, they become very famous, and everyone looks up to them. When their city or other people need help, these ordinary people turn into superheroes.
WHY I CREATED A CHILD SUPERHERO?
Considering all of the above is one of the reasons why I created Leo, a children’s fairy tale superhero. Leo & Lucas is a new kind of children’s fairy tale superhero in children’s stories. Although both Leo & Lucas are different in so many ways, it’s a story about caring, friendship, and doing the right thing. This incredible tale speaks to the heart of children in finding love and compassion with friends no matter how different they might be.
The image of such a hero serves as a self-esteem booster for thousands of kids and teenagers. Leo & Lucas help kids who do not feel secure among their peers and grown-ups. At the specific time in life, pretty much every kid goes through this stage of establishing himself or herself as an individual, so many positive images as children’s fairy tale superhero might be of great assistance.
Leo is bald and very clumsy looking. He leads a very sheltered life safe from the outside world. After finding Lucas in the mountains, his whole life changes. His father knew that he was ready to unleash the power of The Magic Sword. He gave his son this wooden sword as a child, but he knew one day it would give him extraordinary power. Leo and Lucas are children’s fairy tales’ superheroes. They help to save the Enchanted Forest from Evil. They accept each other for being different. Together they can do great things!
There might also be another reason that we need Leo & Lucas to emerge as a child superhero—to give children a role model so they can follow. Young kids need to have role models they feel a connection with, and Leo & Lucas are an excellent example of how it’s OK (and even great!) to be different from others. When you give the gift of Leo & Lucas, you’re giving the gift of self-confidence, compassion, and friendship.
Leo & Lucas are newcomers in children’s fairy tale’s superheroes that are here to stay!
