Wonder Woman at Super Hero High by Lisa Yee

Wonder Woman wants to become the best superhero in the world, so she decides that she needs to accept the invitation to become a student at Super Hero High.  She quickly gets the nickname of "Wondy" and gains in popularity due to her roommate posting everything from her waking up in the morning to her not so heroic attempts at saving her teacher in a drill.  Even though she is not fond of the attention she gets from the online following, she is learning to deal with it.  The thing she is not dealing with too well are the threatening notes she begins to receive.  Why would anyone not want Wonder Woman at Super Hero High?  Find out in this quick read by Lisa Yee.

In this novel, I did enjoy reading about how Wonder Woman could have started in her heroic activity.  This is just the first in a likely popular series.  I was a little surprised at how much this rendition of Wonder Woman reminded me of Amelia Bedelia due to taking everything so literally.  I look forward to seeing which other heroes will show up at Super Hero High.

Here is a quick animation of the beginning of the book.  Hope you enjoy it.
