Review - The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World by Shannon Hale & Dean Hale

* Read via NetGalley for review

5 gnomes out of 5 gnomes

Heart + Fun + Nuts + a plethora of squirrels = The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World. Doreen Green aka Squirrel Girl is such a fun character. This book is pure Middle Grade Marvelous. This story made me once again realize just how awesome it would be for Squirrel Girl to have a movie or a TV show.

Having multiple points of view including a squirrel’s makes for an extremely entertaining read. Seeing where she gets her start is enlightening and shows your where her great attitude came from. I really like all the footnotes too so you can really get into the whys and hows of how Doreen thinks.

I love how close she is to her parents and how supportive they are of everything. Her parent’s are very good at turning a negative into a positive especially at the Parent Teacher conference. I also love Doreen’s best friends both squirrel and human.

The squirrel viewpoint of the world and the view into squirrel society really makes the book shine. All the squirrel’s names are pretty darn hilarious too. I adore all the superhero cameos that occurred too.

If you’re looking for a book that is a burst of superhero sunshine and knows how to bring the funny then check this book out ASAP.
