I was really surprised to get my hands on a reviewer copy of this book almost two months from when it made book of the month, especially as it is a brilliant read.

I read it to my toddlers to gauge their response and they loved it. The book is bright and beautiful when it comes to the illustrations and simple in the repetitive language it uses, I thought it was great that I could also provide a book that took a character from an ethnic mi parity background that my children could potentially relate to.

The appeal for younger children probably comes from having a lack of a storyline. My youngest is 19 months and generally enjoyed flicking back and forth requesting the names of items in the pictures.

I have a nephew that is just learning to read, so I think I will be reviewing it to see if it is something he would like. He is your typical boy and doesn't like to read (he'd rather play) so I am hoping this book will appeal to him!

Pages have between 3 and 9 words on them so I found it to be a very gentle introduction to reading.

I rated this book 5 out of 5 stars. My reasoning for this is because I considered it a perfect first read for small children as it is attractive, entertaining and persuasive in a literary way. It is a book I would recommend to young parents to help develop reading skills in children. It is well written and makes good use of all its resources which is great.
Wow! This sounds like a great read. With it being attractive, entertaining & persuasive, the kids are sure to love this book.

I have it in my shelf & think I'm gonna read it next. :D

I rate this 4 stars. It will be easy for young readers to understand. The illustration will also hold the child’s attention. It promotes good values and activities for children to follow.

The book is an excellent children's book. I think Toni is a charismatic character . This book would be a good feast for all children.

I think this book would be a perfect read for my youngest son. The illustrations are great for young readers and the message in the book is simple to understand. A perfect superhero role model for young children.

I love this book. I think that it is a very good book for a child. I would recommend this book for people with kids around kindergarten

I have not read the book neither will I be reading it in the future since from the review and other comments, I understood that it was specifically meant for children and/or their parents. However, most of the comments have been generally positive.

I loved how colorful and inviting it appears. But I gave it a rating of 3 out of 5 because it has no story line or message. I was looking for a message for the kids. It would be more inviting for beginner readers as far as the story line. Any child or adult would enjoy the illustration and colorful look.

I give this book five stars. The story focuses on the things that we don't see in the films of superheroes: the importance of reading, eating healthy food, sleeping and helping others. I like most the idea that the superhero Toni does usual things. So, ordinary people can become superheroes. I like the pictures and the colors.
