Imaginative second grader Eugene McGillicudy loves comic books and superheroes so much that he invents his very own superhero alter ego named…CAPTAIN AWESOME! MI-TEE! Along with best friend Charlie Thomas Jones (aka Nacho Cheese Man) and sidekick Turbo the hamster, Captain Awesome and his superpowered squad protect the town of Sunnyview--as well as the universe--from a comical crowd of “bad guys” like Queen Stinkypants, Dr. Spinach, Mr. Drools and Baron and Baroness von Booger.

Captain Awesome Has the Best Snow Day Ever?

Book #18

Captain Awesome is determined to make this the best snow day ever in the eighteenth adventure of the Sunnyview Superhero Squad!

Captain Awesome just woke up, and something is suspicious. His mom’s not calling him to come downstairs for breakfast. His school clothes aren’t laid out for him. He peeks out the window and gasps. He can barely see anything through the piles and piles of...snow! This can only mean one thing. SNOW DAY! And it’s going to be the greatest snow day ever! Or is it?

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Captain Awesome chapter books are perfect for beginning readers!
