Clara Humble is completely charming from the start. A confident fourth-grader who is not only the creator of a comic strip series, she brims with special abilities (supersonic hearing, the ability to spill stuff, and the power to wake up at the same time every day) that she's certain can be harnessed to ward off her rival school mates and her neighbor's impending move. Clara and her pal Bradley put schemes into motion, all whilst trying to decipher what it means to be a bona fide superhero. In book two, our spunky heroine is determined to compete on a television quiz show, one that inevitably has a few twists and turns before the competition is over. Plus each book features a smattering of delightful doodles, perfectly capturing the emotions of pre-adolescence. A wonderful series worth seeking out.
Clara Humble and the Not-So-Super Powers and Quiz Whiz (books one and two) were written by Anna Humphrey and illustrated by Lisa Cinar. Published by Owl Kids.
