The Super Life of Ben Braver Kindle Edition
It all started with a peanut butter cup . . .
which leads Ben Braver to a secret school for kids with super abilities.
Ben has never had any special powers—and maybe never will. But could this be his chance to become the superhero he's always dreamed of?
Packed with black-and-white art and comic strips throughout, The Super Life of Ben Braver is the first book in a hilarious adventure series about the greatness that lies within any middle schooler who dreams big from Marcus Emerson, the author of the smash hit Diary of a 6th Grade Ninja series.

Here are some of the people: There’s Ben Braver (our hero) and Benzilla (a ten-story monster); Penny Plum (who loves her uke) and Evil Penny; Noah Nichols (superpower kid); Donald Kepler (a genius who was born in 1571 and he’s still ALIVE!); etc..
[By the way, when I was 10 years old in Queens NYC in 1956, I saw 3 movies at a time. (I think it was 25¢.) I don’t remember the 2 of them, but the last 1 was “Invasion of the Body Snatchers!”, and I was scared! I didn’t even want to fall asleep. You might like this movie as well! But only for kids that are 11 and up.]
from my 11 year old son (who is hard to get to sit down with a chapter book): "this is the best book ever! it's filled with fun surprises and i can't put it down. ben braver doesn't belong at the special school because he doesn't have superpowers...or does he? he tries to bring out his power in multiple different ways but doesn't succeed. i can't wait for the next book to see if ben finds his superpowers AND how his friends improve their superpowers!"
we have only had this book for a few weeks and he has already read it twice! any author that can get my extremely active boy to sit down with something other than a comic book for more than ten minutes is SUPER. ;)
