If you're a fan of superheroes, you'll love this story of a very little dog with large dreams. Tired of being ignored and bullied, Dex decides to train to be a superhero. He exercises, dons a hero suit, and helps anyone in need including Cleevis, the big bully tomcat. "With the courage of a lion, the strength of a bear, and the heart of a hero" Dex proves that no matter how little you are, you can do very big things.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2005-2006)
