That is what Andro wants to hear when he becomes a sixth grader. Which is why he decided to run as Supremo of the Katipunan.
He did not realize how many things he had to do before he can become Supremo. He did not expect the lessons he had to learn before becoming a leader.
Would his dream of being Supremo come true?
‘Yan ang gustong marinig ni Andro pagtuntong niya ng Grade 6. Kaya naisip niyang tumakbo bilang Supremo ng Katipunan.
Hindi niya inakala na marami palang dapat gawin bago maging Supremo. Hindi niya inaasahan ang mga matututuhan niya bago maging pinuno.
Matupad kaya ang kaniyang pangarap na maging Supremo?

Citation from the 2016 National Children's Book Awards:
Supremo is an engaging read. This heartwarming story takes you back to the good old days when you felt lucky to have a best friend and you felt tingled upon seeing your crush. Its flowing language, realistic plot, and catchy illustrations come together to give you one unforgettable ride. It makes you laugh out loud; it makes you stop and think; it even manages to make you shed tears. And, just when you start thinking you’ve had it all, it reminds you of your social responsibility―without pushing it down your throat forcibly. Kids will love this, and adults will enjoy it, too. Supreme, indeed! —Portia Padilla
