We are so stoked on the graphic novel Sidekicks by Dan Santat! Captain Amazing, resident superhero of Metro City, needs back up on the job, the long hours fighting super villains, and helping the citizens of the city are resulting in a case of burn out. When Captain Amazing’s pets hear the rumor he is looking for a sidekick, each animal, a dog, cat, hamster and chameleon all feel they are the right animal for the job. Be sure to check out Sidekicks for an action adventure animal graphic novel, a great end of the summer read for children in grades 3-5.
