Summary
Captain Amazing, superhero and saviour of Metro City, is getting old. He's out all hours battling arch-villains, catching thieves, and helping little old ladies cross the street. He doesn't even have time for his house full of pets. He needs-a sidekick!

Captain Amazing's pets agree. But each one of them thinks he should get the sidekick spot-and a chance for one-on-one time with the Captain. Get ready for sibling rivalry royale as pets with superpowers duke it out for the one thing they all want-a super family.

A bold and brilliant graphic novel romp by whiskid Dan Santat.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When Captain Amazing is laid up due to his peanut allergy, his pets secretly take up crime-fighting duties and end up in a trial by fire as they get tangled in a supervillain's secret plot. Despite the presence of its charming animal characters, Santat produces much more of a dramatic adventure than a hilarious romp, which is by no means a bad thing. Realistic relationship dynamics come out as Fluffy the hamster must welcome and learn to count on newcomer Shifty the Chameleon, and a hint of psychological nuance is displayed in the static between the estranged runaway cat Manny and his former protege Roscoe the dog. Well-crafted art balances the lighthearted and the rough-and-tumble and works equally well for the character moments and the epic battle at the end. Santat also cleverly uses the action to highlight the importance of smarts over simple brawn. Though not as emotionally intense, the combination of drama and superhero action compares favorably with The Incredibles.--Karp, Jess. Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Santat brings the world of superhero pets to life in this charming story. Captain Amazing is an aging human super-hero who announces to the world that he needs a new sidekick. His animal companions agree-and each thinks he is the right creature for the job. Fluffy, a hamster; Shifty, a chameleon; Manny, a cat; and Rosco, a dog, compete, with all sort of interspecies rivalries emerging. When Captain Amazing's life is on the line, however, they find a way to come together. Santat's lively, colorful illustrations convey the action and humor that infuse the tale. The book functions both as a parable of sibling rivalry and overworked parents stretched too thin, and as a rollicking adventure tale. Ages 8-12. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
