Title: Kung Pow Chicken #2 Bok Bok Boom
Author: Cyndi Marko
Genre: Humor/Superheroes
Similar books: Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey
                     Claude series by Alex T. Smith
Epic Superhero humor

Summary: Gordon and his brother Benny fell into a vat of toxic sludge at their Uncle Quack's science lab. Now they fight crime as Kung Pow Chicken and Egg  Drop, while trying to keep their super hero lives a secret, especially from their mother. At the opera, they must rescue beloved singer Honey Comb from an evil scientist.
My opinion: This series is a great introduction to superheroes and chapter books for young readers. The stories are clever, funny, and well supported by the illustrations. We've had book #1 in our collection for more than a month now and it never stays on the shelf for long. I thoroughly enjoy giving Kung Pow Chicken to young readers.
