Motivation for reading this was because Cathy Camper and Ra l Gonzalez III have a story in it, which was a fun read I like the concept of a series that encourages kids to read, and don t mind this targeting guys because I ve read in many locations they may have lower literacy rates or reading involvement than their counterparts So, whatever helps get kids excited and stay excited about reading is a thumbs up from me.There s a nice mix of content with this anthology, and I liked how some writers [...]

The short stories in this book mainly focused on the heroes and occasional villains that a person would find in the real world A few of the tales were about pretty serious matters immigration, kidnapping, etc and others were kinda silly Benedict Arnold being crapped on by a giant pelican, being sucked through a wormhole in the back of a school locker and ending up in a world where Mother Goose needs your help, etc , but they were all well written and gave their characters a real sense of purpose [...]
