Behling, Steve My Ultimate Super Hero Manual 172 pgs Marvel, 2016. $13.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G
This is an activity book not a reading book. It is for big time fans of superheroes in the Marvel world. It features quizzes, games, tons of facts and information, cutouts, and much more. Examples are: how to make a shield, how to create laser hands, design your own headquarters, and even a board game with a cutout paper dice. All of the pages are bright vivid colors and tons of comic book style and action.
This would make a fun gift for a Marvel superhero fan, but is not right for a school library. Its sort of awkward that pages must be cutout to create some of the games in the book and that the game board won’t lay flat since it’s a double page in the book, many of those things should have been provided as pullaway cardstock pages at the end of the book.
