Overview

Captain Awesome and Nacho Cheese Man must battle the evil forces of pink and love in this Valentine’s Day adventure.

It’s February in Sunnyview, and Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. When Captain Awesome and Nacho Cheese Man start to receive valentines in their cubbies, they know they must step up the watch for all things evil. But Captain Awesome gets distracted when Sally (aka Supersonic Sal) starts to receive valentines of her very own.

Why is Captain Awesome so worried about Supersonic Sal’s valentines? Could it be that he’s hoping for a special valentine of his own? And how will he ever make it through this evil pink holiday?!

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 - 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.
