Hello again to all the young and old superhero lovers alike! With the continuous rise and success of the superhero genre, it's only right that children's books take on the mantel of being youth's first introduction to the hero way. Now, the hero way can be described or taught in many ways, so thank goodness for these superhero books and their often
surprisingly fresh take on what it means to not just be a superhero, but a super person.

Rules of Summer
By Shaun Tan

Rules of Summer by Shaun Tan, is a simple, yet amazingly grand and eloquent story about two brothers and a summer they’ll never forget. First, to enjoy summer you have to follow the rules. Fortunately big brother knows all of the rules: Don’t leave a red sock on the clothes line, don’t eat the last black olive, never forget the password. But if your older brother is making all of the rules, no matter how absurd,when will you finally get to enjoy summer? A relationship will be tested and the story is told beautifully through its layout and approach. The clean, repetitive phrasing mixes with fantastical, darkly themed illustrations more breath taking than the last. This story makes for some truly inspiring imagination.
