My Life as a Book by Janet Tashjian.

If my life were a book, I´d have my own cool adventures instead of reading about someone else´s!

Summer´s finally here, and Derek Fallon is looking forward to pelting the UPS truck with water balloons, climbing onto the garage roof, and conducting unusual investigations. But when Derek´s parents get tired of cleaning up after his “fun”, they decide to send him to Learning Camp. His entire summer is ruined! Until Derek starts digging into a family secret involving himself (in diapers” no less), and he realizes that this summer may not be so bad after all…

Avengers Academy: Permanent Record by Gage and McKone.

Are they the next Avengers… or the next masters of evil?

Recruited by Norman Osborn during his Dark Reign as chief nationals security, six teens – Veil, Finesse, Mettle, Hazmat, Reptil and Striker – were subjected to torturous training methods by Osborn to mold them in his image. Now, in the Heroic Age, they are enrolled by Hank Pym – and his team of instructors including Tigra, Justice, Speedball and Quick Silver – into the Avengers Academy!

Told they are the most promising of the new generation of heroes, the troubled team members soon learn the shocking truth: They are instead being monitored to see whether they will unravel and wreak havoc on the Marvel Universe!

Cardboard by Doug TenNapel.

Adventure begins when Cardboard comes to life! Cam´s down-and-out father gives him a cardboard box for his birthday and he knows it´s the worst present ever. To make the best of a bad situation, they bend the cardboard into a man – and to their astonishment, it comes magically to life. But the neighborhood jerk, Marcus, warps the powerful cardboard into his own evil creations that threaten to destroy them all!

Watch Doug TenNapel sketching his drawings:

Captain Underpants and the terrifying return of tippy tinkletrousers by Dav Pilkey.

When we last saw George and Harold, they were headed to jail for the rest of their lives. What could be worse? How about being pulled from prison by a time-traveling tyrant named Tippy Tinkletrousers! Now the boys are taking a trip back in time to the carefree days of kindergarten, when the scariest thing they had to face was not evil mad scientists or alien cafeteria ladies but a sixth-grade bully named Kipper Krupp, the nephew of their clueless school principal. And because George and Harold don´t invent Captain Underpants until they´re in fourth grade, the clever kindergartners are on their own. Will their brains be enough to beat the bully?!!
