Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rebecca Caswell
Middle school gets exciting when you go to class with superheroes in disguise. Eugene and Charlie, together with their pet hamster, formed the Sunnyview Superhero Squad to keep away the bad guys and other evils. Now the worst holiday is upon them: Valentine’s Day—and all the pink that comes along with it. Since Little Miss Stinky Pink seems determined to foil their plans, the boys must do whatever it takes to save the day. Captain Awesome’s nine chapters are friendly for new or struggling readers; nearly every page displays an expressive, pencil-drawn illustration. In addition, key words are bolded and effortless dialogue remains appealing with the inclusion of words like “MI-TEE,” “scrinch,” and “gak.” Girls may be drawn to the storyline because of the holiday focus and the secret Valentine one of the superheroes unexpectedly finds. School has never been so entertaining. Comics, cupids, and capes collide on the pages of this book. Reviewer: Rebecca Caswell; Ages 5 to 7.
