Booklist - 06/01/2017 At home, a young raccoon named Manny wears a variety of colored capes that conjure up specific powers, helping him to overcome imagined foes like sea monsters, zombie bears, and alien robots. At school, an invisible cape helps him get in touch with his inner power and stand up to a bully. In true hero fashion, his actions encourage other students to defy the bully—and he may even get a sidekick. Richly colored digitally enhanced pencil-and-ink illustrations show that Manny lives with his family in a comfortable suburban environment. Detailed interior scenes make clear the genesis for his imagined foes: goldfish become sea monsters; teddy bears morph into zombie bears. The other students at Manny’s school are an array of adorable wild and domesticated animals. Even the bully (a large pig) is not all that menacing. The brief and straightforward narration is enhanced occasionally by dialogue placed neatly in speech bubbles. Sweet and sincere Manny proves he has the mettle to stand up to foes real and imaginary. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
