Dan Santat is one of my favorite Illustrators. He's done so many of my son's favorite books - The Three Ninja Pigs, the new art for all the Ricky Ricotta series, and The Adventures of Beekle. Sidekicks is now a new favorite at my house. The heroes of the story are the pets of an aging, allergy riddled superhero. He's looking for a new sidekick and they are bound and determined to step up to the plate and show him they are worthy. With big panels, full color, and beautiful art this is a great story to share with younger readers. And older kids, and adults like me, will fall in love with the art. The story is sweet, filled with action and twists and turns. I really loved it. There is so much to see that kids will return to it over and over again. We certainly have at my house!
