It was original, funny, and heartwarming. The author is one of a kind, able to capture the imagination of children, young adults, and adults with his writing. Kudos to Mr. Estes! I def [...]

    9. Nikki Nickerson is an average nine year old girl. She isn't overly popular or stunningly attractive. She probably wouldn't stand out in a crowd. One fine summer day, that all changes when Nikki stumbles across a fantastical creature. A cross between a porcupine and a beaver and possessing the ability of speech, this creature gives Nikki a treasure chest. He warns Nikki that she must be willing to shoulder the responsibility that comes with his gift. Inside the chest are 9 pairs of gloves, each g [...]

    11. I got a copy for review in exchange for an honest review.I had so much fun reading this book! Normally I don't read childrens book, simply because I am not a child. The reason why I picked this up? Because David Estes has written it and I just had to read it. Also YA and adult stories never deal with superhero's and it's nice for a change to read a book about superhero's.Although the book is written for children I think people off all ages can enjoy it. I seldomly have so much fun while reading [...]

    12. Even heroes make mistakes.This is the kind of adventure all kids dream about (okay probably not all kids, but they should). Mr. Estes breezy writing sets the stage for fun escapades with Nikki from page one. Nikki is imaginative, teachable, and could be a real nine-year-old kid. She makes mistakes while getting a handle on her powers which leads to consequences that affect others, but she does take responsibility for them and tries to fix them. I see this as the big difference between her and th [...]

    13. This book is great for 7-10 year olds, as well as a fun quick read for others.Nikki Powergloves is about a nine year old girl named Nikki Nickerson. She hates her name.

    14. Nikki Nickerson finds a magic trunk full of magical gloves that gives her different superpowers depending on the color of the glove. She takes on the superhero name of Nikki Powergloves and along with her trusty sidekick, her best friend Spencer, sets out to do good deeds.Nikki is the perfect superhero for youngsters. This story is cute and clever and sends the right messages to kids about doing what's right!I started out reading this book with my 9 year old granddaughter whenever she'd spend th [...]

    15. Perfect for the 7-10 age range. The chapters are short and well named. We also liked that the narrator really did seem young. So many children's books are written from the perspective of a young child but they sound like adults. The story was engrossing and fantastic. The kids looked around for weeks for their own treasure chest of super powers. There were no hard words, and anything slightly difficult could be easily looked up.

    16. Taking a little longer to read than we would like, but the kids are loving it.If only we didn't have to do homework and could read all day everydayUGH!!!But the idea behind the story is great and colorful - literally - with Nikki and her "powergloves" making a difference and changing lives. My kids love the fact that there are so many gloves to choose from and they each have a special power. Very creative!

    17. Great for kidsThis book will intrude children and young adults to read. The character Nikki finds out she can have super powers but what to do with those powers. How can she hide her identity from her small town? That is when her best friend comes in handy, genius Spencer had all the answers. lots of action and adventure in this story. A great read.

    18. I just finished the book yesterday, and I asked myself if I could wanted to find the next one. The answer? Yes!! I absolutely LOVED this book and I wanted to read the next one but I can't find it. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read an exciting but not scary book.

    19. Mum got this book from the author and i loved it, and im very happy there is not just one book beacuse i wanted more adventures.

    21. Nikki Powergloves: A Hero is Born is a very cute story. My 9-year-old especially enjoyed it. It sets up the rest of the series, but can be read as a standalone. It’s a great book for elementary aged kids and makes a great read-aloud!

    22. A really first class children's book that is enjoyable for all age groups. David Estes really brings the character of Nikki to life and I like her, think of Valkyrie Cain at the age of nine.Quote from Nikki (bored) - "Robbing a bank could be exciting, she thought. She could be like Jessie James and Billy the Kid. An outlaw, always one step ahead of the law! No way, the much wiser part of her brain said, your parents will ground you for a month if you rob a bank."I recommend this book to everyone [...]

    23. The first book in my Nikki Powergloves children's series (ages 7-10 or advanced readers 4-6) had my beta readers reaching for the sequel right away! In this book you learn all about Nikki's superpowers and meet her archnemesis Jimmy Powerboots! Can she save her little town of Cragglyville from Jimmy's tricks? Find out at the start of The Adventures of Nikki Powergloves!!!
