Overview

Captain Awesome and his superhero pals must foil dastardly distractions at the zoo in this animal adventure.

Sunnyview Elementary School is off to the zoo! Meanie Meredith is head over heels for the pink flamingos (even though they are the most evil color ever), and Eugene can’t wait to see the elephants. Unfortunately, they seem to be missing.

Once again, it’s up to Captain Awesome and his superhero pals to fight evil (MI-TEE!) and see past the diversionary tactics of their tour guide in order to find and rescue the most awesome animal in the park.

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Captain Awesome chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Margaret Orto
A field trip to the zoo promises the third graders of Sunnyview Elementary an awesome day of animal spotting. Eugene McGillicudy cannot wait to see his favorite—the elephants. But apparently, the elephants are missing. Eugene, a.k.a. Captain Awesome, and his team of superhero pals, Nacho Cheese Man and Supersonic Sal, spring into action to find the missing animals and save the field trip from ruin. To get to the bottom of the mystery not only do they have to deter their evil classmate Meredith Mooney, lover of all things pink, from insisting that the class visit the pink flamingos twice, but they also have to outsmart their tour guide Randy who seems determined to keep them away from the elephants. Not willing to declare defeat even though it looks hopeless, Captain Awesome spurs his superhero friends to make one more attempt and the elephants are found. Kirby’s trademark kid-sized humor, alliteration and similes continue in this tenth installment in the “Captain Awesome” series. Characterizations are spot on and situations, while every day, are always presented with a light and fresh touch. Comic and energetic illustrations complement the entertaining writing, perfectly pitched for those readers beginning to enjoy chapter books. A sure hit with this crowd. Reviewer: Margaret Orto; Ages 5 to 7.
