Superhero School by Thierry Robberecht

Superheros are on the fringe as a favorite at our house....we are currently ruled by Star Wars.  However this may capture the interest of my favorite 4 1/2 year old boy as the characters have special powers, except Henry.  Henry's classmates like him because he is funny, laughs loudly, and loves to pull pranks.  Teachers on the other hand are not impressed.  They do not appreciate his pranks and his low grades place him as the lowest achieving student in the school.  Henry begins to wonder if he really belongs at Superhero School since his only special talent is pulling pranks.  One day a gigantic monster appears outside the school.  All the superheros spring into action using their special talents to fight the monster.  Nothing seems to take down the monster....until HENRY (cue the music) arrives on the scene with his special gift....pranks!  Using a series of pranks Henry saves the day!  Go Henry! GO!
