Meet a child with superhero-like abilities…and the parents who are racing to keep up with her in this sweetly funny picture book about the blur of childhood, from the award-winning creators of Drawn Together. A perfect gift to celebrate all of our special milestones—from graduations to birthdays and beyond!

From the very beginning, there was something different about this child… An ultrasonic voice. Fantastically elastic limbs. Super-magnetic powers. But it wasn’t until the child took her first steps that she became: THE BLUR!

Nothing can stand in her way as she takes the world by storm: always on the move and darting into danger! All too soon, she is zipping through the days, and zooming over the years… 

Framed as an origin story, here is a fun superhero romp for kids, filled with bold and bright illustrations, that will pull at the hearstrings of every parent.

Dynamic duo: Minh Lê and Dan Santat are the creators behind Drawn Together which received six starred reviews and won the 2019 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature. Their most recent collaboration, Lift, received five starred reviews, was a Washington Post Best Book of the Year and an ALA Notable Book, and was lauded by The New York Times.

Bestselling illustrator: Dan Santat is the #1 New York Times bestselling author/illustrator of countless children’s books, including The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend, for which he won the Caldecott Medal.

Kids love superheroes!: From the Marvel Universe to The Incredibles, it’s a fandom for all ages!

Perfect for new parents: This is a go-to baby shower or early-years birthday gift.

Great for moving up ceremonies and graduation themed promotions.

Asian-American creators depict a family from a marginalized community in all their hilarious, relatable complexity.
