Mega Mouse by Severine Vidal

Mega City is full of Mega Animals. There is Mega Wolf, who loves sports cars; Mega Bunny, who is always losing things; the elegant Mega Pig; and the cheese-loving Mega Mouse. These are the heroes that keep Mega City safe from the dastardly and bloodthirsty Mosquito Man. Mega Mouse is the strongest of the Mega Animals. She likes to help injured animals and children. She has a super-powerful disintegrator gun and is not afraid of anyone. One day, Mega Mouse's friend Mega Pig takes some children are on a bus trip. Suddenly, there is an SOS call. BOOM! Mosquito Man has destroyed the bridge. This is awful. The bus will fall. 'Help! Help!' shout the children. Mega Mouse will save them! She is so strong she does not even need her disintegrator gun. She lifts the bus using her own strength. Mega Mouse has saved the children on Bus 14...and she loves Mega Pig. ''s a secret!'


Mega Mouse's book describes how she lives on Cheddar Street and is the strongest of the Mega Heroes, and details her rescue of schoolchildren, again from the ever-villainous Mosquito Man... The series follows many superhero tropes with a nudge and a wink; the children whom Mega Mouse rescues are wearing Mega Mouse print hats and shirts. Each of the small, square books ends with a silly secret about the featured hero, begging readers not to tell. Simple line drawings with flat washes of color help convey the story and provide humor along with the exaggerated text.--Sarah Stone School Library Journal (12/01/2015)
