Its a normal summer, when Nikki discovers a groundhog called a "Weeble" who gives her a fantastic gift: a magic treasure chest filled with magical gloves. Each pair is a different color and has a different ability.
At first, Nikki and her best friend, Spencer have nothing but fun, playing around with the gloves and unlocking their powers. Then they meet Jimmy, who also seems to have his own powers...and is determined to destroy Nikki's hometown. Things just got real!
I would have loved reading this story when I was a kid. Its fun and full of action and adventure. Not to mention the hilarity! I was laughing out loud several times throughout the story! And while the author has lessons for the characters to learn, it never gets too heavy, and is fun from beginning to end!
Kids who are fans of The Magic Treehouse series or Captain Underpants will love Nikki Powergloves!
Overall, as an adult, I found the series to be engaging and an easy read. I know why my daughter enjoys it so much. Silly in parts? Yes. But, it's got action, intrigue and a dialogue that is true to form. When there are things my wife and I don't approve of (such as Nikki playing a joke on Spencer by pulling down his pants when she first discovers her invisibility powers), we talk it through together. My daughter says she would love to see this turned into a movie or tv series. I'm hoping they don't because Hollywood would ruin it. BUT, I understand why she would want to see these characters brought to life.
I'd recommend this series for those wanting a fun-loving romp through the adventures of a girl superhero. I would say this is more 3 1/2 to 4 stars, but my daughter would be upset if I didn't give it anything other than 5 stars. For $2.99, you can't beat the price for an opportunity to inspire a young mind with a fun story.
I loved the chapter titles and think Mr. Miyagi is the best dog's name ever! I really like Spencer - everyone needs a best friend that fits them - and everything he added to Nikki's journey. Also, this book is completely age appropriate - something as a mother I cherish.
