Macca and Al, Super Pals

Macca and Al, Super Pals 
by Matt Cosgrove (Koala Books) HB RRP $17.99 ISBN: 9781760970246

Reviewed by Jeffery E Doherty

Macca and Al, Super Pals is the seventh book in the Macca the Alpaca picture book series. What can I say, other than these books are universally adored by children? They are clever and funny with catchy rhyming texts, wonderfully quirky illustrations, and a cast of intriguing characters.  

In Macca and Al, Super Pals, Macca and Al take their love for comic books and superheroes to the next level: they decide to become superheroes. Their antics are gut-wrenchingly funny for both children and adults. I read this book to a class of kindergarten and year one students. They were literally rolling on the floor with laughter, particularly when the scenes involved underpants. I also read the book to my eighty-year-old mother who was laughing so hard she was crying and nearly wet her pants. 

This series of picture books is one of my favourites and Macca and Al, Super Pals does not disappoint. This book is light and funny and will be loved and re-read by children of all ages. I definitely recommend this book!
