The boys form the Society of Super Secret Heroes and resolve to use the cape's magic to help others, secretly solving problems through brains rather than brawn. With the cape's advice and assistance, the SSSH members help reconcile two quarreling friends and plan a huge surprise party to help a new teacher feel welcome. Unfortunately, the class bully is determined to force Finch into a fight, whether it takes insults, threatening the class pets, or even stealing the cape itself. I bought two copies of this book as it seemed like a book to encourage and interest young male readers. One copy was for the elementary school library and the other was for my grandsons.

Ow! he moaned as he lay there rubbing his temple.

The Great Cape Rescue (The Society of Super Secret Heroes).

The Great Cape Rescue is a decent book. It’s not amazing, but it’s a cute story. Slightly nerdy guys who played super heroes as little boys now realize they are too old for this game as they are entering 4th grade

The Great Cape Rescue is a decent book. Someone, however, missed the boat in trying to make it a superhero story. It’s not. Sure, a group of friends get together and call themselves superheroes, but there’s nary a superpower in sight. Slightly nerdy guys who played super heroes as little boys now realize they are too old for this game as they are entering 4th grade. When one of the gang starts to get rid of his cape, he realizes it can communicate with him, and provide "super hero" help with school and home problems.

But "something" is telling them to form a club-a secret society. Inspired by the coolest heroes of all time, from the Justice League to Spider-Man, here is a hilarious, heartfelt story about four friends who will never be ordinary again. When the magical power reveals itself and boasts that it can "turn ordinary mortals into extraordinary ones," the Secret Superheroes are ready for their first missions: thwarting the school bullies and saving the class hermit crabs.

With the beginning of the fourth grade at hand, Fin and his three best friends make a pact to form a secret society where they will use their superhero skills to improve the lives of mere mortals, stop the class bullies, and save the class hermit crabs!

I bought two copies of this book as it seemed like a book to encourage and interest young male readers. One copy was for the elementary school library and the other was for my grandsons. I haven't read all of this book yet as my grandsons took their copy home with them, but the portion I read seemed interesting for young male readers. I can't rate it 5 stars as I haven't finished it yet. We will be visiting my grandsons soon and I'll finish reading it there.

Finch and his pals love to play superheroes, but since they are starting fourth grade, they fear it is time to grow up and quit playing this babyish game. Just as they put away their capes for good, something tells Finch his superhero days aren't over. When he decides to listen to this inner voice that tells him he and his friends can be extraordinary, the Society of Super Secret Heroes is born.

This is a cute story of boys being boys, but going beyond themselves to make life better for others...all in secret. This book is fast paced and fun and will keep kids turning pages. There is also an interesting use of exotic language which can work expand your child's vocabulary. The kids in the story are multicultural and their lives are just unique enough to not be cliche. However...

Though this is an entertaining story and could well keep kids reading, it won't be for everyone. The story is chock full of pop culture. There are many references to TV, movies, video games and computer usage that not all children are allowed or exposed to.

Finch, the main character, is from a broken home and has issues with his dad and his dad's new family. Though it is handled tastefully (and could be expressing very realistic feelings of / to children living the situation), and even provides some teachable moments, not all parents would want their children to begin to worry that this could happen to them. Finch also sneaks onto the computer while his mom is sleeping. Though he uses it for educational purposes, I didn't like the precedent set that it is okay to hide from your parents what you do on the computer. I realize that I tend towards overprotective and not all parents will agree with me on these points.

If you are looking for a basically clean, fun read, especially for boys, this could be the book for you.
