A review of "Sidekicks,: by Dan Santat: Captain Amazing, superhero of Metro City, needs a sidekick. He's always out battling arch-villains, catching thieves, and helping little old ladies cross the street. He doesn't even have enough time to be with his pets.
Captain Amazing (Harry) has four pets, a dog called Roscoe, a cat called Manny, a hamster called Fluffy, and a gecko called Shifty. When Captain Amazing says he needs a sidekick, all his pets tryout, even though he had said "No pets".All Captain Amazing's pets, like himself, have superpowers and cool names. Roscoe's is Metal Mutt, because he is very strong. Manny's is Static Cat, because he can make static electricity shoot out from nowhere. Fluffy's name is Fluffy, and his superpower is that he can't die.Shifty is called his own name as well, and his power is that he can change colors.
Manny tries to train Roscoe to be Harry's sidekick,but he relies too much on his powers. There is another superhero, Wonder Man,who wants to be Captain Amazing's sidekick, too. Everybody thinks Wonder Man is the perfect man for the job…
I liked this book very much. It was written and illustrated by Dan Santat. All the pictures are so funny, and the talking animals are very humorous. This fun graphic novel about superhero pets will make you laugh out loud.
