When you think of superheroes, those that immediately come to mind are probably Batman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman…but we have compiled a fantastic list of Reading Bug staff favorites that are not your ordinary licensed characters!
I began compiling this list when I came across one of my favorite new picture book titles coming this Fall 2018, Max & the Superheroes in which (spoiler alert!) the greatest superhero of all is Max’s mom! We all know that moms ARE superheroes, of course!
Superheroes come in many forms, so find a new favorite here:
Siblings who used to fight with each other find a new way to get along and play…fighting crime together!
You know Turbo as the crime-fighting hamster from the Captain Awesome books. Turbo isn’t just any hamster…he’s here to fight evil in and out of the classroom such as flying ninja squirrels, a gang of evil rats, giant Eraser Dude, and more!
Doreen Green must start at a new school, make new friends, and continue to hide her tail. Yep, Doreen has the powers of . . . a squirrel. She saves cats from trees, keeps the sidewalks clean, and dissuades vandalism. Can Doreen balance being a teenager AND a superhero? Or will she go NUTS?
