Do you like when people are funny, weird and odd? Well, if you do, read Captain Awesome!
This book is about Captain Awesome and Nacho Cheese Man. Captain Awesome’s real name is Eugene. He is pretty weird, funny and dramatic. Captain Awesome is weird because he likes a comic called Super Dude! He likes Super Dude so much he makes his own costume. It has a hoodie with and “A” on it, gloves, and a cape with sweatpants underneath, just like Super Dude. Captain Awesome is funny because whenever he gets excited he screams, ”MI-TEE!” That is weird in a funny way.
Nacho Cheese Man’s real name is Charlie. He is a bit weird too because he gets two cans of cheese and crackers and shoots them in people’s faces to distract them so Captain Awesome can save the day! Queen Stinkypants is the bad guy, but she’s a baby that stinks and talks baby-talk. How odd is that? But really, I think it is so FUNNY!
Captain Awesome and Nacho Cheese Man are in second grade. Their music class is having a play called The Winter Wonderland. The star of the play got the flu. The teacher made Captain Awesome be the star. Someone sent him an evil note to try to get him to quit the play, but he didn't, he was too brave! Captain Awesome and Nacho Cheese Man caught the person and Captain Awesome did something awesome. I'm not going to tell you what he did. You have to read it!
Now I hope you read Captain Awesome! There are 13 books in this awesome series.
