There's a new superhero on the scene--Mighty Reader is here to inspire every reader!

It's Hugo's first day of school, and the shy beagle pup is eager to make friends. But when the teacher asks his new buddy Barkley to read an unfamiliar book, the young dog freezes. Only Mighty Reader can save the day by giving Barkley some tricks to get through the new story, and the confidence to put on a performance that will impress everyone--even a visiting author.

This fun comic book style picture book is packed with advice for new readers on honing their skills, plus a glimpse at author Will Hillenbrand's creative process.
