It’s summertime in Sunnyview and Captain Awesome is headed to the pool in this all-new Captain Awesome adventure!
It’s summertime in Sunnyview and Eugene McGillicudy is off to the pool for swimming lessons. It doesn’t take long for Eugene's superhero alter ego, Captain Awesome, to find a list of reasons why he must defend his swimming class from a cast of comical “bad guys.” MI TEE! While Captain Awesome is busy saving the Sunnyview pool along with Nacho Cheese Man and sidekick Turbo, will he find time to tackle a dive into the deep end before summer ends? With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Captain Awesome chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.
Stan Kirby tied a beach towel around his neck and became Super Commander Beach Boy when he was six years old. When Stan’s not creating the awesome adventures of Captain Awesome, he loves reading comic books, eating okra, and hang gliding (but not at the same time).
