From the library
The story: Awesome Man is, well, awesome. He can fly, hold things with his awesome power grip, and shoot positronic rays from his eyes. He defeats bad guys like Professor Von Evil and the Flaming Eyeball. But Awesome Man has a secret...
Mama opines: Well, I'm continuing on my Michael Chabon-fest this month. Who knew he also wrote a children's book? Not me! We read a lot of superhero books around these parts and this one holds up to the competition. The story is fun, it will make your small people laugh, and the illustrations are wonderful.
Thoughts from David: Awesome Man is the best! I like it! (proceeds to crash into mommy)
Favorite part: When he gets the eye to go away!
