After the 2011 Thanksgiving meal, I read this aloud to my sons and nieces, ranging from age 8 to close-to-13. The two younger kids got more enjoyment out of it, though all of them liked it. The panels feature big characters with lots of colors; the illustrations are good.

The story is about a boy who discovers new super powers during a game of dodgeball at school, something I could have used during my own 6th-grade dodgeball games. Before long, word gets out about Joey's super speed (and other powers), and the mafia come knocking, along with evil corporations replete with corrupt individuals.

There is some mild trauma and strife, with a set-up for a sequel at the end. It's a cute, fast and chuckle-worthy read.
