Winter Reading 2014 Powerpuff Girls Volume 1

If you enjoy reading BabyMouse, you may also like the colorful adventures of the Powerpuff Girls. In this volume they face off against Mojo Jojo, a nasty swamp creature, Ace and the Gangreen Gang, Fuzzy Lumpkins and other foes. It's impressive that they can manage all that and still not miss bedtime. I think the author must enjoy sci-fi/fantasy movies because I noticed lines from Star Wars and Star Trek in the story. 

Having small female characters who are able to defeat much larger villains is empowering for young girls. Another positive aspect is the vocabulary that readers are exposed to - exoskeleton, unstoppable, inconceivable, primate, inherently, capacity, and outmaneuvered are just a few of the words used in the dialogue. Fans of the show will enjoy seeing their heroines and the villains of Townsville on the written page.

I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley. It will be published April 29, 2014. The Cartoon Network has free online games and videos from the show that you can enjoy until the book is available.
