Meeting Notes for September

Meeting Notes for September 20:

Positive Comments:

  • The illustrations use gray well for things that aren’t “super.”
  • The story shows that the protagonist’s friends all have super powers, too; their powers are everyday activities amplified.

Concerns:

  • This title is an “okay” book, not one of a hundred.
  • This is a utilitarian book, a superhero book for younger kids because the market for them exists.
