Superhero School

Reynolds, Aaron. Superhero School. Bloomsbury: 2009. ISBN: 978159991664

My book Superhero School is a fiction book about a boy named Leonard, who is enrolled in a school for superheros because he has powers such as heat vision, super strength, and flight. However, in his new superhero school he thinks he will learn how to stop run away trains when instead his teacher teaches math, just like regular teachers. When Leonard's teacher and the rest of the staff are kidnapped, Leonard and his classmates must band together and try to get their teachers back from the ice zombies. Can their knowledge of math and super powers be enough to rescue their teachers? I enjoyed this book because it was interesting how the authur showed that even superheros need to know math. Also, the author described how irritated children can get when they are learning something that they truly don't want to learn, and they want to learn something else. This is just like Leonard wanting to learn how to stop trains instead of learning how to add, subtract, multiply, divide, and use fractions. So all in all, it was a good book. This book would most likely be recommended to a younger audience. A benefit would be to show if you work hard, you get rewarded. However, it is an enjoyable, short book to read.
