It is pricey, yet the read and play book has the kids, and myself, laughing and enjoying this together. What more can I ask?! I wonder if there will be another or if this is the only book about Awesome Man! I have a preschooler and a grade schooler - they both like the colors, the words and think it is fun.

The book was just okay. My boys like super heros, so I thought this would be a great book for them. However, the plot is a little strange and there are some questionable expressions in the book. I am a little conservative when it comes to what expressions my children are allowed to use. "What the heck" and "shoot" are not what I consider polite. The book would have received five stars if these expressions would have been omitted.

    fun read from Michael Chabon

    I like Chabon's work and it was fun to stroll through the kids section as I often do and see this! I purchased for the Nook, and it's an enjoyable (though wordy) kids book. Nothing groundbreaking, but taps into the psyche of a boy at play really well.
