It's Oscar's job to tell everyone what to bring to the neighborhood picnic. But the young daydreamer forgot to hand out the lists. Now there won't be any food or games. But with determination, some lightning-fast moves, and fancy footwork, Oscar saves the day!

This humorous story grew out of Oscar De La Hoya's recollection of the neighborhood picnics that were an important part of his own childhood. Super Oscar also features exercise tips and fitness advice.

Oscar es el encargado de decirle a todo el mundo lo que tiene que traer al picnic del barrio. Pero este joven soñador olvidó repartir las listas. Ahora, resulta que no habrá ni comida ni juegos para jugar. Pero con un poco de determinación, algunas movidas veloces y otro poco de sagacidad, ¡Oscar salvará el picnic!

Esta divertida historia está basada en los recuerdos que tiene Oscar De La Hoya de los picnics del barrio, una parte importante de su propia niñez. Súper Oscar también incluye algunos consejos del medallista de oro para mantenerse en buen estado físico.
