About the Book
Book: Super Doople
Author: K.A. Cummins

Release date: May 4, 2023
You’ve heard the legend of Humpty Dumpty, but do you know the legend of Super Doople? He’s faster than a chicken. He flies higher than an ostrich. No fall can break his shell! And he was once Little Doople, a small and fragile egg like all the other dooples, until his bad habit of not listening caught up to him.
Engaging text with expressive illustrations, Super Doople is a lighthearted tale about resilience and learning to listen. This funny picture book for ages 3-8 is perfect for reading aloud in the classroom or at home.

More from K.A. Cummins
“Super Doople” started with a comic sketch and the idea of what if a scientist put Humpty Dumpty back together again? At first, it was more for fun and to explore creating comics. In fact, in the first version, he bounced like a ball when he hit the ground.
But the idea stuck! I continued to gravitate back to it, enjoying the exploration of telling a story with words and drawings. Many sketches and several versions later, the character became Little Doople, a hopeful and determined boy with a dream of flying who, through a series of events, transforms into Super Doople.
It’s been so much fun working with Little Doople, especially having our youngest son engaged with the story. Our youngest is sixteen now and has a talented eye for design. He’s one of the first people I ask for art critiques (the other being my husband). He even helped me come up with the name doople, for both the character and the egg-people in the story. We brainstormed in the car on a two-hour drive home.
The joy of creating this story, and from the story itself, has become its own source of inspiration. I haven’t stopped brainstorming more story ideas for Little Doople. I’ve even started plotting some of them, but those are under wraps for now.
However, being a homeschool mom and former educator in other forms, I wanted to share a free educational resource to go along with “Super Doople.” So I’ve put together a few science egg-periments, activities, and coloring pages suitable for younger children that’s available for FREE on my TpT store: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Doople-Science-Hands-on-Learning-Activities-9145443.
Hope you and your children enjoy reading “Super Doople.”

Super Doople is a cute little children’s picture book by K A Cummins. It has some sweet lessons for young ones to learn and even the bigger adult kids could learn, too. My young children really enjoyed it, as I did, as well.
Super Doople, also, shows that the author, K A Cummins is also a talented artist. The pictures perfectly follow the story and help the younger readers to hold their attention. I thought they were a wonderful addition to the book.
I am giving Super Doople five stars. I highly recommend it for readers who are between the ages of three and seven. I would love to read more delightful children’s books from K A Cummins in the future.
I received a soft cover copy of Super Doople from the publisher but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
