Superhero Kirkus Review

9780385755344

It’s always a little bit of a relief when your first review comes out for a forthcoming book and not only is it a good review, but it highlights many of your own favorite aspects of the book.

Kirkus reviews writes, “. . . a ‘complete, unabridged’ instruction manual that guarantees it can turn anyone super in ‘seven easy steps.’ In the background, a friendly dog and an intrigued-yet-suspicious sister follow [the young boy] throughout his journey to superherodom in hilarious counterpoint.

The review finishes off with, “This funny, spirited exploration of superhero culture sans violence and with an added dose of familial love is a powerful addition to any bookshelf.”

One of the dearest aspects of the book to my heart is the relationship between the main character and his sister. There is a definite love/hate relationship that plays out over the course of the story, and yet, in the end, they know they can count on each other. Isn’t that what being a hero is all about?
