Review: An Extra-Ordinary Girl (Ellie Ultra)

An Ultra-good read. (4 stars)

Ellie Ultra is a sweet, fun chapter book for young readers. When her super powers make her the odd kid out Ellie chooses a path of dishonesty to fit in. But when her friends need her she has to choose between what's comfortable and what's right.

If you know a child who enjoys superhero stories and secret identities this is a clever book they're sure to enjoy. It's not preachy but delivers a few valuable lessons about honesty, being true to yourself, and giving others the benefit of the doubt. I think this would be a terrific story for a parent and child to read together.

  1. Hi Rhianna! Thank you for reviewing ELLIE ULTRA. It makes me super happy to know you enjoyed the story. The series holds a particularly special place in my heart--my daughter inspired Ellie! She's a huge Marvel fan who was looking for stories with superhero girl main characters, and we had trouble finding them at the library. I decided to create an early chapter book series that featured a superhero girl, one who tackled problems while busting bad guys. Ka-POW! Ellie was born!

    Go superheroes and girl power!
