Benny Breakiron Volume 1 The Red Taxis HC – Papercutz brings out another series from Peyo, the creator of the Smurfs! Benny Breakiron is a little kid with an exceptional ability: He has superpowers! Honest and polite, Benny uses his superhuman strength, speed, and leaping to stop crime and injustice. In his first adventure, Benny’s friend, the taxi driver Mr. Dussiflard is in trouble when a new taxi service, the Red Taxi Company moves in. The more Benny learns about them, the more he realizes something isn’t right. It’s up to Benny to learn who is behind them, what they are up to , and to stop them once and for all, while keeping the property damage to a minimum. Benny Breakiron looks to be another winner for Papercutz. With a protagonist that kids can relate to, and good role model potential that parents and teachers can get behind, this new series is a must for any elementary or teen library and/or collection.
Wolverine Young Readers Novel SC – Marvel moves Wolverine from the comic shelf to the bookshelf. This illustrated prose story follows Eric Mattias, a new student at Xavier’s School for Gifted Students, and has the “suckiest” mutant power. Through a series of blog posts, Eric describes life at the school and what seems to be his worst day ever, which also turns out to be Wolverine’s worst day ever. Written from the perspective of a complete outsider, this book gives a different look at some of Marvel’s most popular mutants in a form that kids can relate to and enjoy. Fans of superhero comics and Wolverine in particular will want to check this book out.
