Super Fun Excerpt:

Owen hurriedly set up the family room. Today Allie was coming over to finish their superhero training and she would be here any minute!  The doorbell rang as Owen finished getting the training course in place. He opened the door. There stood Allie with a broad smile on her face. “Hi Owen! I’m ready to finish my superhero training.” she exclaimed, skipping right into the house and striking a power pose.

 

“Great!” Owen said, “Follow me!”

 

Allie followed Owen into the family room and picked up the blue cape as Owen swung the purple cape over his shoulders.

 

“Are you ready to use our super smarts to decipher the coded instructions and make some tools with the alien elements?”
