5.75 / 7.0

My four-year-old daughter loves pretending to be a superhero, but there aren’t many superhero books that feature girls as anything other than love interests, objects to be rescued, or weirdly sexy B-list sidekicks. This book is the exception! It includes fun, cute, healthy illustrations of all of the female superheroes from Marvel’s recent movies alongside little blurbs describing their stories. The writing is just okay, but I don’t mind reading it to my preschooler. I’m not exaggerating when I say that we desperately need this book and more like it.

Who Wrote Captain Marvel What Makes a Hero

author
Pamela Bobowicz

Pamela Bobowicz grew up in Massachusetts, impatiently waiting for her superpowers to kick in. When she realized she’d never be able to fly (afraid of heights), become invisible (too loud), or be a spy (can’t keep a secret), she moved to New York to become a children’s book editor and writer, and believes she’s been saving the world ever since.
