An environmental adventure! Ocean's Revenge by Gavin Aung Than is the second book in the graphic novel series Super Sidekicks, featuring Junior Justice, Flygirl, Dinomite, and Goo. In this installment, the Super Sidekicks are faced with a mystery to solve and a creature to stop. The superheroes of the world are missing, and a giant plastic monster is terrorizing Sydney. Can they save their city before there is nothing left?

I really enjoyed this one. The Super Sidekicks are an interesting team of children who were fed up with their adult superheroes so they formed their own team. Readers will learn the importance of teamwork and friendship through watching the heroes interact with one another. This one also tackles the importance of caring for the environment and gives children examples of how to reduce/reuse/recycle.

The action flows easily from one panel to the next with colorful illustrations and easy to follow type. I like that the story was divided into easily consumable chapters. This gives early, independent readers the confidence they need to read while also giving them easily defined stopping points. Between the action and humor readers will not want to put it down.

Final Thought: Ocean's Revenge is an exciting adventure teaching kids the importance of teamwork and friendship and the responsibility we have to the environment.
