When a superhero decides to get a new sidekick, his pets want in on the act. And that's not quite as bad an idea as it sounds. This graphic novel is fun, and middle school students will enjoy it. Heck, I enjoyed it, and I'm an adult.

I loved Sidekicks because it was a great book! It was funny, and it had a lot of action in it. This book was definitely in my top 10. I would definitely read this book again! I finished it in a day, and it made me think I could do anything. My favorite character was Roscoe, but I also liked Captain Amazing. I liked them because Roscoe is a dog and love dogs, plus he's heroic. I liked Captain Amazing because he has awesome powers. I took a reading counts on this and I rated it 5 because it only went up to 5, but if it went up to six I would put it as a six because this was a very good book. Thanks to the 2015-2016 Bluestem Challenge, I read it and I loved it. This book about superheroes and they had to beat Captain Wonderman which turned to be Captain Amazing's arch nemeses. I think my favorite part was when Captain Wonderman turned bad, and then he stole Captain Amazing’s powers. But then all the animals teamed up and was determined to save Captain Amazing. The animal’s did this because he's allergic to peanuts, so Captain Wonderman went on the ground. If you feel like reading a book that is hilarious I wouldn't get this book, but if you want a book this cool, heroic, a little funny, and has a lot of action, get this book. It is a great book and a lot of fun. *4th grade student
