it was amazing
bookshelves: children-s-picturebooks, recommended

My 4 year old daughter picked this one off the library shelf and I have to admit I was pretty dubious. I'm not a big superhero fan (although Batman rules, naturally), so I thought reading this to her would be pretty tedious.

Heck, no. This turned out to be a snickeringly funny ABC with ludicrous superheros such as "Multiplying Mike (becomes Many More Men in Minutes" and "The Volcano (Vomits on Villains)". Illustrated earnestly in perfect comic style, I have to say I was completely won over. And forced my husband to read it. Definitely recommend for kids 4-up.

***wondering why all my reviews are five stars? Because I'm only reviewing my favorite books -- not every book I read. Consider a novel's presence on my Goodreads bookshelf as a hearty endorsement. I can't believe I just said "hearty." It sounds like a stew.****
