In The Adventures Of Sugamama, we are introduced to a little girl named Sugamama who loved to cook with her mother. One night she ate too many cookies and passed out with her baking apron still on. When she woke up, her room was strangely full of pink and green lights. Her apron was now a cape and her afro puffs were magical. They gave her the superhuman ability to fly. With her new powers, she flew all over the world until she came across a sad girl crying. Deciding to help, Sugamama flew in and asked what was wrong. When the girl told her of the monster underneath her bed, Sugamama took care of the problem quickly. Sugamama liked to help people so much that she decided to fly all night helping those in need. After a long night's work, Sugamama crawls into bed and falls fast asleep.

I thought The Adventures Of Sugamama was an adorable and fun read. I feel kids will really like this story, especially girls because the main character Sugamama turns into a superhero. It will appeal to girls because the whole female being a superhero with abilities is still not as mainstream an idea as you would think. A majority of heroes in stories, comic books, movies, and television are still predominately male, so it’s a nice change to read. Sugamama is very relatable, being a typical little girl who loves to bake with her mother. The illustrations are beautifully done and fit perfectly with the storyline. Shaneisha Dodson has done a wonderful job with this book and I cannot wait to see what she will come out with next.
