Praise For Ten Rules of Being a Superhero…
“This story illuminates the fantasy world of one little boy and his favorite toy, Captain Magma . . . will appeal to young superheroes (and their sidekicks) everywhere.” —School Library Journal
“Pilutti has painted every toy a child could want: robots and monkeys and a green troll with hair like a firecracker . . . The illustrations of the playroom are the highlight of the book.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Instead of opting for braggadocio and mock high drama, Pilutti's duo's self-awareness and low-stakes theatrics have an offhanded, almost improvisational vibe.” —Publishers Weekly
