Mateo is so excited. It's his birthday and he can't wait! Not only will there be a party later with friends but his grandmother is bringing him a very special gift: a red velvet cape. It's a cape for superheroes! Mateo imagines all the wonderful things that will happen when he wears the cape, from not needing to hold his big sister's hand on the way to the bus to being more popular at school. But is the gift really what he thinks it is? Or did Mateo misunderstand what his grandmother said?

Author, Illustrator: Dana Sullivan

Dana Sullivan was born in Los Angeles, California, and has been drawing on scraps of paper and in the margins of math tests for as long as he can remember. Since he has always loved reading and drawing, he got a degree in Comparative Literature from the University of Washington and then one in Graphic Design from Seattle Central Community College. Dana was the Creative Director at Costco Wholesale for 16 years until he realized he wasn’t being all that creative. He quit to become a full-time writer and illustrator of children’s books. He tutors reading at the neighborhood elementary school, is the resident on-the-spot cartoonist at 826 Seattle (one of the national chapters of Dave Eggers’s 826 Valencia nonprofit organization), and is on the advisory board of the SCBWI Northwest Chapter. Dana has been married to the same lovely Vicki for 30 years and still misses the real Ozzie, an incredibly stubborn and wonderful Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) named Max, who continues to inspire. They live near Seattle, Washington, with their dog, Benny
