Super Hero Squad: Iron Man's Super Power Mix-Up - Zachary Rau
For more reviews, check out my blog Craft-Cycle

Found this is the Little Free Lending Library by my house and, as a big fan of superheroes and picture books, I picked it up to give it a read. 

This is a fun story about mixed-up super powers. The illustrations are cool, because of the superhero mashups. I ended up bringing this book to work (I work with 3-5-year-olds) and all of the kids enjoyed it as well, (especially Tiny Hulk Smash!). 

I don't know much about the Superhero Squad, but my one complaint would be that there are absolutely no female characters in the book. A quick Google search revealed that there are a decent amount of female characters in the series (Invisible Woman, Storm, Ms. Marvel, Scarlet Witch, Wasp, Black Widow, Sif), but none appear in this book despite the mixed cast of Avengers and X-men. 

Overall, a fun read with great illustrations. Would just like some more female representation.
