    1. This was a super fun prequel to the existing Squirrel Girl comics. I love that it had a deaf character (who was totally awesome btw) because you don't see that often in books. Overall, it was silly and outrageous but that is Squirrel Girl in a nutshell (bad pun I know).

    2. I love Squirrel Girl. She is, without a doubt, one of my all-time favourite characters for a number of different reasons. What are those reasons? LET ME TELL YOU…Doreen Green is hella delightful, to start with. She has endless supplies of optimism and positivity. She’s not a brooding puddle of angst and she has a strong support system involving her parents (alive and well) and her friends (also alive and well). She is compassionate and kind and is always trying to look for an alternative way [...]

    3. "I never understood because what's wrong with lemons to begin with? It's like saying "if life gives you people, grind up their organs for a beverage."."Received at BEA Chicago 2016When I grow up I want to be a combination of Squirrel Girl and Nimona. Two of the baddest bitches on this planet. If only I were an adult with a kickass tail and a mohawk. Story time kids gather round now and scooch closer.McCormick Place in Chicago. Standing in line waiting for a book and spot two people wearing squir [...]

    4. 4.5 stars. Squirrel Girl is such a great combination of exuberance, optimism, strength and humour, and that's definitely captured in this story of Doreen Green as a 14-year old and her deciding to become a superhero. She's aided by Ana Sofia, a deaf girl in Doreen's new school who's a whiz at math, programming and figuring out problems. Ana Sophia cannot resist Doreen's charm and sheer positiveness, and the two begin dealing with the rising crime in their neighbourhood. A mysterious villain sele [...]

    5. Okay, so this book is just FUN. It's adorable and light and filled with squirrels, and even though I am definitely not a squirrel fan, I enjoyed the heck out of this book. It's a perfect antidote to the grimdark, doom and gloom, we're going to murder people and then stand in the rain trend in superhero comics.To be clear, though, this isn't a graphic novel. It's a novel-novel, a prequel to the Squirrel Girl comics, about Doreen's assumption of the superhero mantle. And it's everything I liked ab [...]

    6. This was a whole lot of fun. It doesn't go super deep, but it is a very entertaining book. I love Squirrel Girl as a character and I also love how we got to see a bunch of Avengers as well as other Marvel characters - so not only do we hear from a bunch of well-known characters like Black Widow, Iron Man etc but we also see She-Hulk, for example. If you're looking for some light-hearted superhero fun, I'd definitely recommend this book.

    7. 5 stars is not enough stars!!!!! This book seriously kicked butts!Pretty much everything I expected from a Shannon Hale Squirrel Girl Middle grade book, and let me tell you I expected so much. Everybody should read this book.

    8. Beautifully funny and heartwarming. I'm so happy to finally have a super-hero book where the character's parents are a.) alive b.) good parents c.) not stupid d.) supportive. (The only other book in that vein I know of so far is Ms Marvel, I think?) Also ASL as part of the setting and plot, the power of friendship, and several two-page spreads that are the funniest things I have read in my life.

    9. Ryan North and Erica Henderson write and illustrate the most recent (and wonderful) version of Squirrel Girl comics, but somehow Shannon and Dean Hale managed a very similar voice and feeling. It was great, it made me happy from cover to cover, just like the comics do. It helped that I already knew exactly what Doreen looked and sounded like, and her mom as well, but I think Doreen would seem cute right off the bat to new readers as well. I really liked the chapters from Tippy's point-of-view; b [...]

    10. “I’m here to kick butts and eat nuts. And I’m ALL OUT OF NUTS!”Squirrel Girl is my favorite super hero. (Actually, the only super hero I like!) Ryan North’s Doreen Green is so full of heart and charm… the Hale Doreen came across as obnoxious and weird.A lot of things bugged me in this novel. The footnotes were awkward and didn’t mesh with the story, chapters from Tippy-Toe’s perspective with forced “squirrel slang” made me cringe a little bit, and I despised how the villain w [...]

    11. This novel is a prequel to the Squirrel Girl comics. I picked it up on a whim, squirrel super hero-what's not to love, and half way through the book I went to the book store and bought 6 comic books. Now that I know where she started from I want to read about squirrel girl when she had come into her own. I liked this regardless because of the awkward jr high-ness of it. Doreen is weird and awkward like most jr high kids, watching the "somebodies" from the table in the back of the cafeteria. Exce [...]

    12. This prequel to the current SquirrelGirl comic series is a fun, charming and endearing read. A great addition to the SQuirrelGirl mythos.

    13. Meet Doreen Green, or Squirrel Girl! Here to save the day, or well mostly babies and squirrels!I was a bit hesitant when I spotted this book (yes, they had this book at one of my libraries). My first meeting with Doreen/Squirrel Girl was through the comics and I have to say I hated it so much I dropped it quite fast. Doreen/Squirrel Girl was annoying, the story was eh, the only good thing was the humour, that was pretty decent. So yes, I was worried. But I still wanted to try, and see how Shanno [...]

    14. This is a really fun prequel novel to the amazing Squirrel Girl comics by Ryan North and Erica Henderson, aimed at middle grade readers. This story stars a young Doreen Green as she starts ninth grade at a new school in a new town. Doreen has always been told by her parents to keep her squirrel tail covered up and her awesome leaping abilities on the down-low (so the other kids don't get jealous), but when a villain calling himself the Micro-Manager appears to threaten the town's squirrels, Dore [...]

    15. Chitty chuk!(That's OMFG THIS IS SO CUTE in Squirrel, for those of you who haven't yet read it)I made a pact last year that I would try to read more Marvel comics. I was heavily reading DC (until Rebirth 😒) and Squirrel Girl was one of the comics that came recommended. I couldn't resist picking up Squirrel Girl, to go along with the Red Widow books.Still thinking about whether or not to read it? Here's my top 5 reasons why you need a little Squirrel Girl in your life. Kick Butts and Eat Nuts. [...]

    16. In the running for best squirrel superhero novel out there (which is something, given the other one is a Newbery Medal winner). Definitely the best squirrel book with footnotes (sorry, Lynn Rae Perkins.) It's the best of the popular franchise books by distinguished childrens' authors that I've read. (I've also read and liked Tom Angleberger's Rocket and Groot book, but that is a slighter work. I felt E.K. Johnston's Ahsoka novel wasn't as strong as her own original works.) I thought the first tw [...]

    17. This was really fun, and I'm glad it exists, especially for kids who might be turned off by graphic novels but are interested in the character of Squirrel Girl. Or just squirrels. IDK.There is a lot of Marvel Universe injokey stuff (Doreen's texts to all the other Avengers) but I think it mostly would still be funny on some level even to kids who aren't as familiar.I also loved that Doreen's friend is a hearing impaired Latina girl! I will say that for me, personally, I didn't like it as much as [...]

    18. Sheer goofy fun! Campy and big-hearted, this was a laugh-out-loud tonic.I listened to this on audio and the production was outstanding. The two narrators totally captured the tone of the book and were spot-on with the dialogue!

    19. This review is from: Marvel: The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World (Marvel Fiction) (Paperback)Customer review from the Vine Programme. I am reviewing The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl by New York Times Best-Selling authors Shannon Hale and Dean Hale. Here are my thoughts:^^ Doreen Green is an adorable 14 year old girl just like you and me, only she's secretly also a squirrel with a bushy tail and has a penchant for gnawing on wood to keep her front teeth trim. But yeah, to the every da [...]

    20. 4.5 starsI would recommend this book to: squirrels, people who like squirrels, people who like nuts, people who like babies, people who like Shannon Hale, Marvel fans A totally amazing book. It is written for 4th through 7th graders but I really really enjoyed it. It's a really easy read, I finished it on a day and a half. The writing style is great, the characters unique and lovable, the humor amazing and the cover is really neat too. My only complaint is that the book is written for a younger [...]

    21. This is such a cute middle grade book! A mix of txts and narrative the story follows Doreen who secretly calls herself squirrel girl as she moves to a new school, makes new friends with humans and squirrels, and fights MM who wants to be a supervillian. The parents in this story are so fun, as they are conflicted about how to protect their daughter and also are so proud of her special talents.I was a little worried at the beginning that Doreen was going to be too annoying but by page 20/30 I rea [...]

    22. SQUIRREL POWER! I'm a massive fan of the SG comics, and I'm delighted that Shannon and Dean Hale have brought Doreen into a novel so well. This is geniunely exciting, clever, funny and wonderful, and I know readers will go NUTS for it. 8+*Please note: this review is meant as a recommendation only. Please do not use it in any marketing material, online or in print, without asking permission from me first. Thank you!*

    23. Así es como haces una novela YA respetando sus orígenes,cambiando cosas mínimas (no es niñera del bebé de Jessica Jones pero cuida a un adorable pequeño llamado Dante),haciendo referencias a otros personajes Marvel sin quitarle protagonismo a nuestra heroína ardilla.Otro punto importante es que la historia no decae y el supervillano es malo malo.

    24. I love Squirrel Girl so much so when I saw this book I knew I had to have it!This is a great introduction to Squirrel Girl, it's similar to the comics but definitely geared towards the younger crowd.

    25. In this hyperbolic age of exaggerated modifiers it is hard to take some things literally. So bear with me as I address two points.1. This book made me laugh out loud. Ask my roommate, who looked at me and asked what I was reading, and then was just bothered by laughter she could not share because only one person can read a book at one time. Ask my cat, who does not appreciate it when something she is sitting on begins to shake and make noise. This book is hilarious. 2. Squirrel Girl is unbeatabl [...]

    26. 10/10 NUTS. WILL REREAD FOREVER.I loved this book. It makes me happy. READ IT.AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHI need the sequel like, yesterday.

    27. The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale is a novelisation of the awesome comic book character's early high school life and emergence as a superhero. It's a YA book and is set when Doreen Green is fourteen and has just moved to New Jersey from LA.This book was awesome! I mean, Squirrel Girl is already a pretty awesome character and if I had any apprehensions going in it was that the novel character wouldn't be quite the same as the comic character. But, al [...]
