Not only is it a great adventure story, but it's got 17 pretty cool illustrations which give it a graphic novel effect. Any kid that would want to be the "Kid with the Cape" who saves the day--will love this book. Any kid who has ever put a towel or sheet on his back and ran against the wind--will want to read what has already begun to be--a cult classic. "Kid with the Cape" is a lot easier to follow and understand than any of the Potter books.
