I sat down to read this book to my daughter in the last week. She usually is a fan of super hero stories and she has enjoyed our books about Marvel characters recently. However, this book took a few days for her to get interested in. After the first night of reading the first two mission briefs, she asked if I had forgotten to finish her last book. She seemed quite disinterested, until we finally got into the story itself.

Once the story started probably, she was happy to listen to the way Cap runs circles around another character. She was happy to jump off the bed and sound me her Black Widow moves as well. I enjoyed the mission recaps of the previous movies I have seen with Captain America in them. I also liked the story. I'm likely to see it at the movies, so there was a bit of a spoiler factor. However, for a kid it is quite good because it's unlikely she is going to see it.

The middle of the book also includes some nice full colour film stills. So if you like the actors and actresses and wanted memorabilia from the film, this book is quite good. At $9 it's a pretty good price and I'm sure it would be a good little novel for school holidays coming up. I personally don't think we will re-read this one, but I'm glad we wee able to add to our super hero knowledge and it definitely sparked some awesome moves from my girl.

With children starting to become interested with superheroes and the likes I thought this would be a good way to let the kids hear one of the stories without watching a movie that they aren't old enough for yet.

This junior novel is based upon the latest Captain America movie, The Winter Soldier. The book starts off well as it gives us a short history of Captain America and how he went from being the scrawny Steve Rogers to the super strong Captain America to hero. This is rather good, especially as my curious six year old hasn't seen much about superheroes or read much about them so far.

This is, of course, a very condensed version of the movie, and so most of what we have is character introductions and action scenes, keeps the book moving but doesn't give much time for rest, so it was a good thing that I read this to the kids over a couple of weeks, a chapter a night. Some of the writing was a bit irritating and I just found it hard to read it, so luckily this book isn't aimed at me or it would not have even been finished. There's a few pages right in the middle of the book with photos from the movie, so a good visualisation for my son.

While I didn't like the writing style my son was enthralled by the story and can't wait till he is older and can read it on his own.
