The all-too-perfectly named Kirby (alluding to comic book giants Stan Lee and Jack Kirby) kicks off an early chapter book series that introduces eight-year-old Eugene McGillicudy, who views life through the lens of comics and believes himself to be a superhero: Captain Awesome. “That’s one of the cool things about being a superhero,” Eugene says. “You get to pick your own name.” Dressed in his superhero finest (a hoodie, a pair of shorts outside his pants, and a towel cape), Captain Awesome sees villains everywhere: his baby sister is Queen Stinkypants; his teacher Ms. Beasley becomes Miss Beastly; and class meanie Meredith is dubbed Little Miss Stinky Pinky. O’Connor (Kapow!) opens each chapter with crayoned cartoons “drawn” by Eugene that, along with more polished spot art—complete with sound effects like “Bonk!” “Pow!” and “MI-TEE!” (Captain Awesome’s superhero rally call)—bring Eugene’s imagined feats of daring to life, as he investigates the disappearance of class pet Turbo the hamster. Action, comedy, and hyperbole should easily hook readers, especially those who share Eugene’s love of comics. Simultaneously available: Captain Awesome vs. Nacho Cheese Man. Ages 5–7. (Apr.)
