Ten Rules of Being a Superhero by Deb Pilutti


Ten Rules of Being a Superhero by Deb Pilutti

In order to be a real superhero, you have to follow some important rules:

Rule #1: A superhero must ALWAYS respond to a call for help.

Rule #2: Saving the day is messy. But everyone understands.

In this handy guide, Captain Magma and his trusty sidekick, Lava Boy, take young readers on an adventure to learn all ten rules of being a good superhero.


This story illuminates the fantasy world of one little boy and his favorite toy, Captain Magma . . . will appeal to young superheroes (and their sidekicks) everywhere. School Library Journal

Pilutti has painted every toy a child could want: robots and monkeys and a green troll with hair like a firecracker . . . The illustrations of the playroom are the highlight of the book. Kirkus Reviews

Instead of opting for braggadocio and mock high drama, Pilutti's duo's self-awareness and low-stakes theatrics have an offhanded, almost improvisational vibe. Publishers Weekly
