Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–6—Ben Braver's dad calls him "creative" and his mom says Ben is a "free spirt," but Ben thinks he's just a typical, boring 11-year-old boy. He's spending the summer at home watching old Batman reruns starring Adam West, reading comics, and dreaming of becoming a superhero. His whole life changes when he has a craving for a peanut butter cup. He sets off on his bike for the local gas station to buy the delicious treat and return home. But events result in a big detour when he hears someone crying for help. Though his intervention doesn't go well, he winds up getting selected to attend a school for kids with super abilities—that is, if the school doesn't find out he has no superpowers. Entertaining "zip-pop-go" action is divided into 53 brief chapters and accompanied by numerous black-and-white cartoon illustrations. VERDICT A clever hybrid novel that's sure to be a hit with the comic-cartoon crowd and fans of superhero tales.—Helen Foster James, University of California at San Diego --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

“A clever hybrid novel that’s sure to be a hit with the comic-cartoon crowd and fans of superhero tales.” ―School Library Journal

“A crazy fun ride―action packed and loaded with laughs!” ―Max Brallier,
New York Times–bestselling author of The Last Kids On Earth
