Super Sprout

Own your copy of the book international bestselling children’s author Jackie French couldn’t put down, “Super Sprout indeed! I was hooked as soon as I saw the first page.”

As Sprout looks at the amazing things his forest friends can do, he wonders what it would be like to have a superpower of his own.
But being super seems a lot harder than he first thought. That is, until a good friend shares a secret that changes everything…

Meet the author, Lincoln.

Lincoln’s path to becoming an author was an unusual one. His debut picture book Sprout’s Idea was conceptualised when he was asked to share a message of hope with people at the 2022 Secret Oasis Festival.

Reading his story out to a crowd of over 100 people was an experience Lincoln, then just eight years old, will never forget and they loved his story of hope, teamwork, and combatting negative with positive and kindness so much they asked for it to become a book.

Sprout’s Idea has become an international sensation, inspiring young and old alike to be more conscious of the words they speak and their actions around others.

The latest addition to the Sprout series is Super Sprout. Using the festival that started it all as the backdrop of the tale, Lincoln combines his love of superheroes with a story that highlights the power of embracing what makes you unique.

Lincoln is proof that anyone can harness the power of story to make a difference in the world and he is inspiring a young generation of storytellers.
