I know my daughter will enjoy reading this book. She loves books with great characters and colours. I am not going to rate it yet until she reads it too.

I have not read the book though, but what I gather from the reviews and opinions, young parents would like to read this book to their tiny-tots.Kids love to watch superheroes and the colourful illustrations will attract their attention.

This book sounds great. I read a lot to my kids, and this sounds like a perfect one for them. I know a lot of people in these forums have said that they don’t consider Toni’s normal activities as superhero-worthy, but I would disagree. Being honest, trustworthy, and responsible are the true markings of a superhero. If I could instill that into my children, I would be an extremely proud parent.

My family will definitely be reading this book.

I rated this book a 3 out of 4 stars. One of
the key elements in any children's book is
the size of the font. I thought the font in this
book was lost in the fantastic graphics used
in the story (they were superb). The author
needs to work on this otherwise the book
was ok.

I rated the book 4 stars. I found it educative for children, Tony is a very active kid for his age.

Honestly, this book is perfect for children and it won't bore the parents either. I'd rate it 4 out of 4 stars.

I finally read the book and thought it was outstanding - I rated it 4 out of 4 stars. I read it to all 3 of my kids loved it (ages 6 and under) and they all loved it. I have a feeling that I’ll be reading this to them again and again.

Toni the superhero is a good read.However his lack of unearthly powers is annoying.I would give it a 3 star rating.

Though I haven't read this book, I will definitely be recommending it for my 3 year old nephew because it sounds like a wonderful and interesting book for young readers and children just learning to read.

It's a great book for young children. I like the way the author describes Toni like other children, helping his mum to clean up, to wash the dishes, to do everyday chores.
There was nothing about this book that I didn't like.
I think I would recommend to young parents to help develop reading skills in children.

For a childrens book it has some subtle moral lessons for kids. Its not to bad, of course as an adult i wont know its impact on children who read it.

I liked the book because it had a positive upbeat message that any child can be a superhero.

There are many superheros in every day life.

I thought it could have had a bit more of a story line, so I rated it a 3.
