Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a super hero?
I’m JW, and I no longer have to ask myself that question…because, you see, I am one. And I’ll tell you, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Sure you have super powers and all that jazz. But when you actually have to use them…it can get pretty scary.
Review of Grade School Super Hero
This fantasy & action book was a nice short read that my child definitely enjoyed. I read half of it one night, and the next night she was begging for me to finish it with her. It deals with a potential apocalyptic scenario, which was kind of interesting because it’s not something you typically see in books for kids. However, it’s dealt with on a very basic level that young kids can understand, so it’s not an inappropriate subject matter by any means.
Grade School Super Hero needs edited. There are at least two very glaring errors that make the passage mean the exact opposite of what he’s trying to convey. There are two errors in the first couple of pages alone. One of which should have at least been caught by basic spell-check, and then there’s the inconsistent punctuation. That’s just lazy workmanship.
Overall, it was a fun read, and I’ll probably continue it if Miss L demands (there’s a trilogy), but if the author can’t even bother to do a basic check for errors before they publish a story, I can’t be bothered to give a high rating. This type of thing is the reason so many reviewers shy away from reviewing independently published work. It’s one thing if it’s a spelling error here or there, but for a work to look like the author didn’t even have a family member glance at it is ridiculous.
On a side note, and this does NOT affect my rating in any way, this is another one of those titles where the author tries to grab more key word attention for the book by doing THIS in place of the title:
Books For Kids: Grade School Super Hero: Kids Books, Children’s Books, Kids Mystery Books, Kids Fantasy Books, Kids Mystery Books, Series Books, Free Stories For Kids Ages 4-6, 6-8, 9-12
^^ Guys don’t do that, not if you’re trying to get people to take your writing seriously. It’s the mark of an amateur trying to take advantage of long-tail key words. It just looks bad.
