Disclosure: Thanks to Marvel Press for sending me a copy, and for providing a prize pack!
When The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World by Shannon and Dean Hale arrived at my house, my 12 year old son William grabbed it and (literally) devoured it in ONE night! He wouldn’t put it down.
I mean. Truly.
He. Wouldn’t. Put. It. Down.
I kept asking him, “How is it?”
So what is the book about?
Fourteen-year-old Doreen Green moved from sunny California to the suburbs of New Jersey. She must start at a new school, make new friends, and continue to hide her fluffy tail. Yep, Doreen has the powers of… a squirrel!
After failing at several attempts to find her new BFF, Doreen feels lonely and trapped, like a caged animal. Then one day Doreen uses her extraordinary powers to stop a group of troublemakers from causing mischief in the neighborhood, and her whole life changes. Everyone at school is talking about it! Doreen contemplates becoming a full-fledged Super Hero. And thus, Squirrel Girl is born!
She saves cats from trees, keeps the sidewalks clean, and prevents vandalism. All is well until a real-life Super Villain steps out of the shadows and declares Squirrel Girl is archenemy. Can Doreen balance being a teenager and a Super Hero? Or will she go… NUTS?
I personally love that it’s written by a husband and wife duo! How cool is that? Shannon Hale and Dean Hale are the award-winning husband-and-wife team behind the Princess in Black series, illustrated by LeUyen Pham. Shannon Hale is also the author of the Newbery Honor novel Princess Academy as well as the New York Times best-selling series Ever After High. Shannon Hale and Dean Hale live in Salt Lake City, Utah.
