The Mighty Avengers (A World of Reading Level 2) by Thomas Macri –OPTIONAL

Macri, Thomas The Mighty Avengers (A World of Reading Level 2) 32 pgs. Marvel Press, 2012. $3.99  (Rating: G)
This is the story of how the avengers came together. When Loki tries to trick them using The Hulk as bait, a few superheros decide to try to take care of the situation. Most everyone tries to subdue the Hulk while Thor takes on his brother Loki. It will take team work to fight the battles they face.
Students can’t get enough of movie/comic book early readers, and even though this is book is about a popular title –this version is just too stuffed with characters and even 2 separate plots. Even someone who has seen the movies, like me, will be a bit confused. The bottom line is this adaption just didn't cut it for me, and early readers will be over-whelmed.
