How to Be a Supervillain by Michael Fry is a fun summer vacation read — just right for a long car trip. It’s fast-paced and silly with lots of comic-style illustrations.
Twelve-year-old Victor Spoil has two supervillains for parents. They want him to grow up to be evil, but Victor just can’t seem to be bad. He doesn’t even like to make a mess. So they apprentice him to a supervillain named The Smear and send him on a road trip to learn to battle superheroes.
Larrabee flew through this book in the first weekend of the summer and then lent it to me.
