Forget the Avengers, forget the X-Men, forget the Justice League – the Super Zeroes are all you need! At least if you’re into heroic, cute, enchanting, funny and thrilling stories that aren’t all fighting and muscle power.
Even though it’s aimed at 8-12 year olds, this isn’t just a story for kids. And to be honest, who cares about twenty years more or less. Well, more at least, twenty years less doesn’t really work here…
I just finished reading Kid Normal and it is so so wonderful. I’m serious, it’s one of the cutest and most entertaining books I have ever read (and I read a lot, sometimes even adult books). I wish I would have had a hero like Murph when I was a child. It’s such a lovely message and I’m sure it will make many children feel better about themselves.The authors have created something utterly brilliant.I was simply so amazed by the book hence, I have to tell you. I love all the references to pop culture, the word creations and the very creative comparisons – they really make it special and refreshing to read.
Chris Smith and Greg James have put so much thought into it, and a lot of themselves as well. It definitely is a book with personality. And a book to be read out loud. I feel like I need kids to read it to, haha. And who speak English – looks like if I ever have kids I’ll have to raise them bilingual… this is getting weird. Anyway, even without children, I read some parts out loud (you know I’m a weirdo, so that shouldn’t surprise you) and I had a lot of fun.
But there is more to Kid Normal than fun. The main message to all kids out there is that it is great to be normal. You don’t need super powers, everyone can be a hero with a bit of good will and courage. This message is simply wonderful and so many of the children reading it will feel better about themselves due to this story.
