Genre: Children’s book/ illustrated
Summary: Mahalia and Malcolm know that they do not belong to the typical African American family, but that doesn’t stop them from loving their family and just being kids. After their home is invaded by a masked stranger, the siblings set off on a brave and daring adventure to rescue their family. Plunged into an incredible battle to save the family, the kids struggle with the normal fears and anxieties, but they soon discover the enormous range of their superpowers! They also discover incredible secrets about their family: like Douglass: the family’s robot and RedTail1, the family’s aircraft. The most important discovery they uncover is the courage that it takes to keep a superhero family together.
My Opinion: Woah! My goodness it’s an entertaining children’s book but a lot to learn from it. I never thought a story can be this thoughtful and sweet indeed. I read this to kiddo and my niece and they loved it too. It’s a story about truth, care and what it takes to protect. I totally loved it.
Good and Bad: Did I mention that the illustrations are top notch, filled with eye catching colors they add life to the story. It’s very attractive and creative. A book that will cheer everyone.
My favorites from the book: Mahalia and Malcolm of course.
Target Audience: 8+ age group will enjoy it but adults who read comics like me will love it too. A swoon worthy read.
What to expect: Fun, life lessons and a great time with it.
Final verdict: I will whole heatedly suggest to all my fellow book lovers and friends.
