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.



An amusing and fun illustrated book for the little superhero in your life!

Captain Magma and his sweet sidekick, Lava Boy, show you some pretty important things on how to be a superhero. Following these rules will help you succeed in being the best superhero that you can be - and having a trusty sidekick is a super-bonus!

A few important rules to follow:
Rule #2 - Even though saving the say can be a messy job, somebody has to clean it up! (Meaning, even though you had a fun time learning, playing, etc. in the end, you must be responsible and clean up after yourself.)
Rule #3 - A superhero is always brave... but it's okay not to be. Sometimes even the strongest are afraid of something. And that's okay, as long as we try to overcome it. And even if we don't. Trying to understand why we are and coping can be good enough too.

This interactive book will have your little superhero ready to go and eager to count and read along. The colorful illustrations will not only engage them to play along with Captain Magma and Lava Boy, but will also help them see the moral to each rule and remember the true meaning of being a good superhero.

The ultimate book for the inventive child in your life!

*The publisher sent me an ARC for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
