revved up and raring to go to stop speeding runaway trains.” But on the very first day his teacher, the Blue Tornado, is all about the times table. “I’m sure I’ll be too busy destroying alien death rays to ever worry about multiplication,” Leonard tells him. “Mr. Tornado just chuckled. This was very troubling.” Soon there is division to learn, and fractions, too. Math is seriously subduing Leonard’s excitement for Superhero School. But when ice zombies strike and kidnap all of the teachers, Leonard and his classmates discover that math skills are just as important as superhero powers when it comes to saving the day in Aaron Reynolds’s playful, witty picture book. Andy Rash gets into the spirit of the storytelling with his boisterous cartoon-style illustrations. CCBC Categories: Picture Books for School-Age Children.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
