Storybird Scribes: June Challenge roundup

The June Challenge asked you to imagine Dad’s Secret Superpower. It could be anything from the ability to fly to the moon, to matching socks from the dryer as long as it was secret, and a superpower. In return, you told us about that superpower and how he uses it for the betterment of all humankind (or just your neighborhood, family, or laundry).

There were lots of compelling stories about superhero dads submitted to the June Challenge. This story stood out by combining the best of all of them: subtle humour, surprise and the idea that the small everyday challenges are sometimes the most heroic…

Eye-sa and the Airplane Method by theworldisastory

“I can’t eat carrots, Papa, so please don’t bother making them for me.” Isa told Papa. Papa smiled, and presented Isa a softened carrot. “Now you can, Isa. I have softened these carrots in a heating device so you can eat them.” Isa frowned. She didn’t want to eat those carrots, and the feeling was mutual. The carrot doubled, tripled, quadrupled, five-upled, six-upled in size! The seasoning formed its green eyes, and a below dent transformed into its mouth. It was the menacing, evil Captain Carrot!
