Staff Reviews

While you can see the picture of this new, plucky, young superhero, Gabby Gomez, here, you have to pick up the book to take advantage of its scratch-and-sniff, bubblegum-scented goodness!  The story is engaging as well, featuring every day villainy in the form of a purse snatcher, a snotty teacher, and a nebby classmate in this first book of an on-going series.  The end of the book, though, gives a peek at the Big Bad who is hatching a plan to destroy Gabby.  This is a great option for beginning readers.
