Simon & Schuster, 2014. ISBN: 9781925030501
Highly recommended for 1-5 year olds and fans!Ted Prior's Grug series has been a much loved part of early childhood reading since 1979, now parents and grandparents can share a new Grug adventure with their young ones.
When Grug wakes up, he decides he wants to be a superhero. Using his imagination he makes a stick sword and a simple cape and mask. Cara his best friend dresses up as well, making their costumes from scraps of material and yarn. Superheroes need a super car and the friends make over the Grugmobile, turning it into the Zoom Zoom Car.
Cara informs Grug that superheroes need to save someone, so the friends zoom off to look for someone who needs help. Unfortunately the Zoom Zoom Car zooms them down the slope and into a tree. Who needs to be rescued now?
A great new addition to the Grug series, simple, colorful illustrations, easy to read text and an activity that families could participate in together, making superhero costumes and building a simple go kart.
