Super Turbo vs. the Flying Ninja Squirrels (Super Turbo: The Graphic Novel #2)Featured
Turbo and his pals in the Superpet Superhero League are in super-big trouble when the flying ninja squirrels that live in the tree outside the school accuse them of stealing their sacred golden acorn! Truth be told, Professor Turtle IS in possession of it—that’s why he’s been so speedy lately—but he didn’t STEAL it! Can the superpets and ninja squirrels work it out and join forces to battle the real evil that’s lurking in the shadows of Sunnyview Elementary?
This graphic novel adaptation of the Super Turbo chapter book features fun, bright, full-color panels that bring the story to life better than ever before—but with all the same humor and action that readers have come to expect from Super Turbo!
In this installment of the series, Whiskerface has hatched a new plan to take over the school after stealing the Golden Acorn from the secretive Flying Ninja Squirrels. The only problem with his plan is that the acorn is missing. Turbo and his friends are having their weekly superhero meeting when they decide to check out the volcanoes in the science lab with Professor Turtle. Professor Turtle is moving faster than usual, so fast the other superpets are having a hard time keeping up with him.
I like the attention to detail and how the author subtly points the reader in the direction of the mystery surrounding the Golden Acorn. The illustrations and simple language are engaging and entertaining. There are also well delineated chapters, making it easy to find stopping spots for younger readers who are not quite ready to finish in one sitting.
Overall, I highly recommend the series to readers who enjoy adventure and battles of good vs. evil.
-Perfect for newly independent readers
-Engaging and entertaining
