Reviews

Praise for Leon the Extraordinary:

"Leon is a superhero whose powers are kindness and common sense. It's a really good book about a really good kid!" -- Jerry Craft, author and illustrator of New Kid

"A heartfelt and hilarious hero's journey. LEON is super!" -- Lincoln Peirce, author and illustrator of Big Nate

★ "Nicholas's innovative tale, brimming with fully fleshed out characters and bombastic battle sequences, is one to revisit again and again." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"This is a silly and fun-filled story with a heartwarming throughline about not needing special abilities to have an impact on one's community... A solid, action-filled comedy with a crucial message." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Jamar Nicholas delivers an engaging story about finding your own power... an uplifting read." -- Book Riot

"It's a refreshing change of pace to have a kid hero who's Black at the center of the story. Supersize panels with bold coloring truly make the stylized character designs pop and the action sequences come to life with plenty of classic superhero action. The various body types and skin tones represented in the artwork underscore the narrative that anyone can be a hero." -- Booklist

"Nicholas crafts a heartfelt story highlighting the power of doing the right thing and the strength of mothers... The range of diverse characters and relatable situations, such as bullying, jealousy, and personal growth, will provide readers with recognizable characters and feelings... Belonging on library shelves, this book will leave readers wanting more from Leon and his crew." -- School Library Journal

"Hand this to your graphic novel loving readers who need to see the extraordinary in the ordinary, or who just want a fun, well-written, well-drawn superheroes vs. villains story. The text also celebrates a young Black main character, the love of a mother, the strength of community, and the friends surrounding Leon every day." -- School Library Connection
