Zapato Power - Jacqueline Jules, Miguel Benitez

Zapato Power: Freddie Ramos Springs Into Action by Jacqueline Jules illus by Miguel Benitez
Freddie's adventures thanks to his custom made super fast sneakers continues in this second installment. Freddie is always ready to use his Zapato power to help someone in the neighborhood. Though if Freddie can't learn how to slow down at school his secret identity will be revealed. He tells Mr. Vaslov the man who created the sneakers about the problem. Mr. Vaslov quickly begins working on a solution.

This is a great early chapter series. I love Freddie Ramos and the community the author is building around him. The story moves at a great pace and there's a lot of action. Benitez illustrations are wonderful. I love that Freddie's superhero tag line, Zoom Zoom Zapato, it's big bold and pops out. The illustrator also puts a lot of detail into his characters facial expressions.
