How to Be a Supervillain: Born to Be Good turned out to be such a fun read! It's about a GOOD supervillain who is tired of living the super life and is considering to become a librarian (despite everyone's protest) but before he even tries, he gets pulled into another super adventure where he and his friends have to save all the kidnapped suppers from an unknown villain!

One of the things I loved the most about this book is the type of superpowers all the supers and villains have. Our main character Victor Spoil is a Tickler (he tickles everyone intensely!), but you can also find every kind of peculiar powers and names such as Dr. Deodorant, Moldy Dave, Smelly Foot, Flame Kicker, Worm Boy, Yeastmaster, and so on!

The illustrations found inside helped a lot to imagine the characters and their fun quest. I often found myself staring far too long into some, taking in all the little details like finding random characters among the supers.

I must confess I did not read the first book in this series, but I truly believe this sequel can be read as a standalone. It provides a swift summary of Victor's previous success of saving the world (and failing at being a super villain) so readers won't feel lost if they decide to pick up this sequel instead of the first (though it would be fun to read back-to-back!).

Final Verdict:

How to Be a Supervillain: Born to Be Good is a fun middle grade super adventure that readers of every age will come to enjoy! I know my younger self would have enjoyed this book so much (as I did now!). It brings back great memories of witty reads full of humor and funny illustrations in the likes of Captain Underpants.
Good Points
Funny illustrations!
