Captain Awesome to the Rescue! by Stan Kriby-ESSENTIAL

 Kirby, Stan. Captain Awesome to the Rescue!  Illustrated by George O’Connor. 128 pgs. CHAPTER BOOK.  Little Simon, 2012.  $14.99.   

This book is about a boy who is the new kid in the class.  He gets to take care of the class pet for the day.  His arch-enemy, who happens to be a girl, wanted the turn instead.  Eugene takes the pet home and decides that this class pet should be his side-kick.  When Eugene gets back to school his arch –enemy tries to steal his pet!  What will happen?  

I liked this book because of the great illustrations.  I liked how he wanted this pet to be his forever friend.   I enjoyed reading this book!
