In book 3 of the Mighty Meg series, Meg finds her nemesis in a mean boy at school who may have super-strength!
After mastering her superpowers, the last thing Meg needs to become a real superhero is a nemesis! Jackson, a boy Meg remembers as small and quiet, is suddenly strong and mean! Jackson starts making fun of Meg's classmates, and even hurting some of them.
Meg begins to wonder if Jackson is regular-kid strong or if he's super-strong like her, and she makes it her mission to investigate and uncover the truth behind his new strength! Does Jackson really have superpowers? Will Meg ever find out the truth behind Jackson's new strength and behavior?
Gr 2-4-In this third installment in the series, Meg is finding it more and more difficult to hide her powers from her friends after discovering a scarlet-encrusted ring that grants her super strength. When a schoolyard bully named Jackson begins to show some of the same feats of strength as Meg, she wonders--does he have superpowers, too? Or is he just a bully? Meg has to juggle Jackson, her trio of increasingly suspicious friends, and her energetic six-year-old brother Curtis in this engaging mixture of chapter book and graphic novel. VERDICT Author Griffin and illustrator Player touch upon social issues gracefully. The dynamic fusion of graphics and chapters makes this a perfect bridge between picture and chapter books.-Amanda C.
