The Lil' Defenders

The Lil' Defenders 
The Lil' Defenders by [Hope, Jaimie]
About the Book
Who says kids can't be superheroes? Don't believe it's true? Follow these kids on their first mission, they make a believer out of you too. Inspired by real life children achieving extraordinary feats using everyday items, their brainpower, and teamwork.

My Review
The idea behind the Lil' Defenders  is sound, but I feel like it could have been better executed. I felt that the book was extremely rushed and the "bad guys" were a joke. The "bad guys" were random thugs littering in a park who the Lil' Defenders beat up. I understand that this is a kid's book, but the bad guys should have been introduced sooner and been more bad. For instance the thugs could have been littering while they were robbing kids of their lunch money and maybe roughing them up a little bit. I found the illustrations to be sub-par for the adults. The pictures of the kids were okay, but the adults looked rather ugly in the book. This is not a horrible book, but it could have been developed and written better. I was provided with a free copy of this book for only my honest and unbiased review of the book.
