Praise for Super Sidekicks 2: Ocean's Revenge

Why we love it: The creativity in all the characters, evil villain and super hero alike, knows no bounds and it's action packed. There's also a very clear message about what we are (and unfortunately aren't) doing to our oceans

Better Reading

A timely series with an important message and the potential to have a huge impact.

Barbara Braxton, Teacher Librarian, thebottomshelf.edublogs.org

The environmental message is strong and is a good support for the current attention being given to demonstrations against climate change by young people across the world. This black and white graphic novel will appeal to reluctant readers because of its format but will also attract more competent readers through the strong message and the status the team creates for itself. Superheroes are sure to attract many readers, and of course the Sidekicks solve the problems and win over world leaders.
