Where I failed in some other new chapter books intended for my kiddos, I certainly succeeded here! My class loved this book - the fifth in a series. It has an attractive cover for young kids, and they were hooked with the idea of reading about Captain Awesome. When opening it up, it's not at all intimidating - large print, but feels like a chapter book to most, with illustrations and humor. It combines a lot of positives for appealing to young readers, and I received great feedback from those wh ...more

Eugene's dad was going to bring Eugene and Charlie to soccer. Eugene was running down the stairs and he tripped. He said, "You won't trip me today, stairs of evil."

He ran to the door and opened the door. He went outside and hurried in the car. Then they went off to pick up Charlie. Charlie was also known as Nacho Cheese Man. When they got in the car, Eugene's dad put on baby music. His dad loved the baby song. Eugene and Charlie were covering their ears and they couldn't take it, so they just s

Following in the same vein as previous books in this series, Eugene and Charlie fill each chapter with non-stop action making for a speedy, exciting non-stop read that tugs at what appeals to boys. Fun story with a value learned. Eugene loves soccer and joins up only to find one catastrophe after another: his dad is coach, the team is co-ed meaning Meredith is there, he can't kick the ball without fulling over, the evil WHISTLEBLOWER is the referee and he receives a yellow card when he arrives o ...more

Well, I am not sure if I want to continue this series. Don't get me wrong, I love characters with imagination, but this is just getting ridiculous, and I am sure isn't healthy that all kinds of normal stuff are, in the eyes of Eugene, evil villains. :|
My 5-year-old son is enjoying the Captain Awesome books. But I'm a bit disappointed in this one. There's way more of the "ew, girls have cooties" than in the other ones. And what happened to his new friend, Sally Williams, who also loves Super Dude (girls like comics, too!)?

This one wasn't as MI-TEE as the others.
Not quite as enjoyable as the previous outings, but this is still a catchy series for young readers, and one I'm sure they will continue to eat up.
Not my favorite in the series, but a solid Captain Awesome story with capes and nacho cheese galore. Always fun to read these aloud and my stepson loves them.

When Stan Kirby was 6-years-old, he tied a beach towel around his neck and became Super Commander Beach Boy. He tried his best to protect sand castles from the waves, keep seagulls away from his French fries, and keep the beach clean.

When Stan's not creating the awesome adventures of Captain Awesome, he loves reading comic books, eating okra, and hang-gliding (but not at the same time).
