As Marvel fans, my kids love to read comics. They also love reading regular chapter books. Marvel's new “The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World” book is first-ever novelization of Marvel Comics’ cute, quirky, and downright furry Super Heroine and a perfect blend of Marvel fun and chapter book reading to encourage literacy in kids.
In this exciting middle-school releasee, 14-year-old Doreen Green moved from sunny California to the suburbs of New Jersey. She must start at a new school, make new friends, and continue to hide her fluffy tail. Yep, Doreen has the powers of…a squirrel!
After failing at several attempts to find her new BFF, Doreen feels lonely and trapped, like a caged animal. Then one day Doreen uses her extraordinary powers to stop a group of troublemakers from causing mischief in the neighborhood, and her whole life changes. Everyone at school is talking about it! Doreen contemplates becoming a full-fledged Super Hero. And thus, Squirrel Girl is born!
She saves cats from trees, keeps the sidewalks clean, and prevents vandalism. All is well until a real-life Super Villain steps out of the shadows and declares Squirrel Girl is the archenemy. Can Doreen balance being a teenager and a Super Hero? Or will she go…NUTS?
So far one of my three girls have made their way through “The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World,” and the other two won't be far behind.
