Guys Read: Heroes & Villains

(3) 4-6 A collection of ten short stories that explore the various meanings of hero (and, occasionally, villain). Written by well-known children's authors, including Jack Gantos and Pam Muñoz Ryan, the volume offers historical fiction, nonfiction, fantasy, a comic (by Cathy Camper and Raúl the Third), and more. Another strong and not-exclusively-for-guys addition to the Guys Read series.
