Jez Alborough was born in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey in 1959. As a young boy he was always very creative but it was not until a guest brought him a box of crisp white paper, some pencils and an eraser that he expressed his creativity in drawing.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2—After reading Super Duck, Duck dons a cape and mask and tries a variety of ways to get Goat's kite up in the air. His friends patiently let him try his own ideas, like using a truck to fly the kite, before coming up with their own conventional solutions. Finally the superhero comes through with an unexpected maneuver. Alborough's short, amusing rhyming couplets keep the text moving along fluidly, making the book a good choice for storytimes. Each spread has several panels of illustrations, which will remind readers of other, more successful superheroes. The characters' movements and energy sometimes cause them to break out of the boundaries of their panels, creating a dynamic feel. All in all, this funny book is about friendship—the protagonist is allowed his individuality, but is supported when things don't work out. A gem.—Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
