Join the unbeatable Squirrel Girl! This exciting middle-grade release is the first-ever novelization of Marvel Comics’ cute, quirky, and downright furry Super Heroine.
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World
By Shannon and Dean Hale
Publisher’s Synopsis: Fourteen-year-old Doreen Green moved from sunny California to the suburbs of New Jersey. She must start at a new school, make new friends, and continue to hide her fluffy tail. Yep, Doreen has the powers of… a squirrel!
After failing at several attempts to find her new BFF, Doreen feels lonely and trapped, like a caged animal. Then one day Doreen uses her extraordinary powers to stop a group of troublemakers from causing mischief in the neighborhood, and her whole life changes. Everyone at school is talking about it! Doreen contemplates becoming a full-fledged Super Hero. And thus, Squirrel Girl is born!
She saves cats from trees, keeps the sidewalks clean, and prevents vandalism. All is well until a real-life Super Villain steps out of the shadows and declares Squirrel Girl is archenemy. Can Doreen balance being a teenager and a Super Hero? Or will she go… NUTS?
Ages 8-12 | Publisher: Marvel Press | 2017 | ISBN-13: 978-1484781548

What an e citing book for our future Super Heroes. At least in our family. There are a couple who are still undecided what super powers they’d have. 🙂
Love the puns and want to see what happens to the girl with the tail.
So adorable, hope I can win for my granddaughter!
Sounds like an interesting story. Would love to give this book to my kiddo.
