Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Donut (middle name: The; last name: Destroyer) has a heart of gold and incredible strength. She lives in a world where everyone is born with a special ability and can choose whether to develop it for good or evil. Donut has just received the best news of her life -- she's been accepted to Lionheart School for Heroes! But her parents are the most infamous villains around, and her best friend, Ivy, can't understand why Donut would choose a life of boring heroism and ruin their plans to cause chaos. Donut is determined to prove that, despite her last name, she's meant to go her own way and be a hero. Meanwhile, Ivy cooks up a plan to get Donut kicked out of Lionheart -- and back on track to villainy!"--Page [2] of cover.

    Although Donut, the daughter of two infamous villains, is a Destroyer, and her best friend Ivy is an appropriately bad influence, always summoning monsters and causing chaos, Donut can no longer deny that, deep down, she longs to use her superstrength for good. So, she enrolls in Lionheart School for Heroes, where she must prove that she doesn't share her parents' evil nature. But as she makes new friends and learns how to be heroic, Ivy lashes out, hoping to ruin Donut's reputation and force her back into the evil fold. While this is a world built on a black-and-white premise of good versus evil, Graley and Purenins happily put all heavy-handedness aside in favor of pure, goofy fun. Graley's artwork is immediately disarming, setting the tone with all the comfort and character of a Matt Groening cartoon—and the humor, too. Both good and evil are played for laughs here, even as Donut's new school serves as a playground for superpower showdowns and a battleground for her beef with Ivy. Good fun. Grades 3-6.
