Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shirley Nelson
In the fourth book in "The Amazing Adventure of Nate Banks" series, sixth graders Nate, Fiona, and Teddy are training to be superheroes under Keystone, who used to be known as Doctor Nocturne. From Captain Zombie, they learn that a group of supervillains were meeting nearby but are not alarmed until supervillains begin appearing in Kanigher Falls. They seem to be threatening Ultraviolet, the town's superhero defender and mild-mannered teacher. While assisting in the battle against Screamfang, Terrorantula, and Schoolboy Krush, Nate and his friends are anxiously awaiting Kanigher Kon, the annual comic convention. Their enjoyment of the convention is spoiled by the supervillains' plan to steal a million-dollar comic. Will Nate and his friends be able to help the superheroes defeat the supervillains? Why is someone trying to embarrass Ultraviolet? Clues to the answers may be found in Giarrusso's short comic that appears within the book. Fans of Nate Banks will not be disappointed by the hilarious adventures of Nate and his friends. Reviewer: Shirley Nelson
