Ten Rules of Being a Superhero by Deb Pilutti

With the proliferation of the Marvel/DC Comics-produced movies and cartoons, various forms of character merchandising, and most importantly, peer influence, you can’t blame a kid for aspiring to be a superhero too. But even superheroes have rules to follow, and who better to guide them than the awesome twosome of Lava Boy and Captain Magma?

  
I’m usually not a fan of books on superheroes, especially the licensed variety, but this book surprised me by being absolutely adorable and, better yet, completely original.

  
While the main text does read like a pretty sensible guide for little superheroes, the hilarious and surprisingly sweet illustrations and speech bubbles detailing the trials and tribulations of the dynamic duo of Lava Boy and Captain Magma, show kids that anyone can be β€” or at least pretend to be β€” a superhero and have the most awesome adventures.

The only superpower you really need, is that of imagination.
