About book The Astonishing Secret Of Awesome Man. By Michael Chabon (2011)

Engaging graphics (to some people, at least) in The Incredibles style, cute story, and it slips in a couple of messages about taking care of yourself and your needs rather than taking anger out on others. You see, Awesome Man can't just go around kicking or pushing things when he gets mad, because he might hurt a whole lot of people due to his great strength. Awesome Man has to figure out another way. And this message is just a part of the story. This is not a book written entirely for the purpose of getting a lesson across to the young readers. Or at least, it doesn't read that way. The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man is nominated for the 2013-2014 South Carolina Picture Book Award.This book will appeal to the superhero fan in all readers, especially young boys. As Awesome Man uses his super grip and positronic eyeball rays to fight evil, readers will be wondering what his astonishing secret is. Awesome Man himself kind of shows readers his secret identity, but many readers will not expect the truth when it is revealed.The illustrations in this book are wonderful, and I think they could serve to introduce the youngest readers to the wonder of comic books and graphic novels. I also enjoy how the author throws some physics terms into the narrative. This allows older science nerds (like me) to enjoy this story on an entirely different level.

This book is great! The story gives readers a lesson in how to handle negative emotion.

My BGC Bigs loved it in my spring break program! Generated great discussion too!

Fun book - not sure Johnny totally "got" it but he enjoyed it.
