Ace Axolotl has everything he needs to be a superhero: a super cool costume, a secret hideout, a loyal sidekick, and a nemesis. There’s one problem: his nemesis is his sister. She gets in the way when he tries to steal cookies from the cookie jar or when he tries to bake a cake for charity. Her battle cry is, “Me, too!” which destroys all his secret plans. He sings to her. He puts her in front of the television. He even gets Mommy to take her to the park. But, surprise – she’s there when he needs to be rescued. The artwork shows that both Ace and his sister are axolotls. In Full Throttle Axolotl: The Superhero Amphibian by Elsie Edelbrook, the final part of the book provides an excellent introduction to axolotl biology, along with a hint at the next book in the series, Ninja Amphibian.
Brother-sister rivalries are common. In this tale, they are both axolotls and superhero rivals. The typical little sister who wants to join in all the big kid fun has talents of her own and is the best part of the story, but she’s conflicted between her desire to get in the way and loyalty to her clan. Even better, the author follows her amphibian rivals with the story of the actual life of axolotls. Full Throttle Axolotl by Elsie Edelbrook tells about the real superpowers of this amphibious creature. They can regrow limbs, breathe underwater, and swim at supersonic speeds. Recommended for both superhero fans and sea creature enthusiasts.
