Synopsis:

Eugene is an imaginative eight-year-old boy who loves comic books and superheroes. Eugene also has his very own supersecret, superhero alter ego named Captain Awesome. MI-TEE!

When the McGillicudy family relocates to a new town called Sunnyview, silly second grader Eugene starts a new school, finds a best friend AND even finds time to defend his toys from his two-year-old little sister, Molly! Luckily Captain Awesome is there to protect Sunnyview...and the universe... from a hilarious cast of creative, comical "bad guys."

About the Author

When Stan Kirby was 6-years-old, he tied a beach towel around his neck and became Super Commander Beach Boy. He tried his best to protect sand castles from the waves, keep seagulls away from his French fries and keep the beach clean.

When Stan's not creating the awesome adventures of Captain Awesome, he loves reading comic books, eating okra and hang-gliding (but not at the same time). George O'Connor's cover — as a mild-mannered clerk in one of Gotham's most beloved children's bookstores — was completely blown when his first picture book, KAPOW!, exploded onto the scene. Forced to leave the bookselling world behind, he now spends even more time in his secret Brooklyn, New York, hideout — where he uses his amazing artistic powers to strike fear in the hearts of bad guys everywhere!
