Imaginative second grader Eugene McGillicudy loves comic books and superheroes so much that he invents his very own superhero alter ego named…CAPTAIN AWESOME! MI-TEE! Along with best friend Charlie Thomas Jones (aka Nacho Cheese Man) and sidekick Turbo the hamster, Captain Awesome and his superpowered squad protect the town of Sunnyview--as well as the universe--from a comical crowd of “bad guys” like Queen Stinkypants, Dr. Spinach, Mr. Drools and Baron and Baroness von Booger.

Captain Awesome vs. the Sinister Substitute Teacher

Book #16

Captain Awesome faces off against an evil substitute teacher in the sixteenth adventure of the Sunnyview Superhero Squad!

It’s an ordinary day at Sunnyview Elementary for Eugene, Charlie, and Sally. At least until the classroom door opens and a teacher who isn’t Ms. Beasley walks in. And he’s not just any teacher—he’s a sinister substitute teacher! But where is Ms. Beasley?

Eugene can only think of one explanation: the evil substitute must have captured and hidden her someplace no one will find her…well, no one except the Sunnyview Superhero Squad, of course! With time running out and their favorite teacher on the line, it’s up to Captain Awesome and his crew to rescue Ms. Beasley!

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Captain Awesome chapter books are perfect for beginning readers!
