About The Book
Captain Awesome and Nacho Cheese Man must battle the evil forces of pink and love in this Valentine’s Day adventure.
It’s February in Sunnyview, and Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. When Captain Awesome and Nacho Cheese Man start to receive valentines in their cubbies, they know they must step up the watch for all things evil. But Captain Awesome gets distracted when Sally (aka Supersonic Sal) starts to receive valentines of her very own.
Why is Captain Awesome so worried about Supersonic Sal’s valentines? Could it be that he’s hoping for a special valentine of his own? And how will he ever make it through this evil pink holiday?!
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Captain Awesome chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.
