This Is not A Comic Book

People hear superhero and think comic book. Comic books are great, but as a quick bed-time read for young kids, nothing beats a simple, entertaining children's picture book.

Entertainment Focused

Some books try to force lessons. Some books push agendas. That is NOT this series. These books are simply created to be enjoyable and entertaining to read.

Book One:

Dragon Slayers


When Mikey, Molly, and Max go on a camping trip, they never expected to become superheroes! A mysterious and powerful device gives the kids the ability to combine themselves with two ordinary objects to become powerful crusaders. When a dangerous creature appears, the siblings must use their courage and quick-thinking to save the day. From the depths of the forest to the heights of the sky, this trio of siblings will face danger and uncover the secrets of their newfound powers.

Written By Ben Wendel

As a West Australian father to 7 children, Ben has read his fair-share of bedtime stories. With a super-hero obsessed 4 year old, Ben noticed that there were no decent super-hero children’s books available, only comic books, which are difficult and distracting to read to a small child.

The few superhero children’s books he did find had boring heroes and the books were so focused on trying to push a ‘believe-in-yourself’ lesson that the book itself was boring for both himself and his son.

So he went about writing a book he wished he could find for his son. He wanted to create an entertaining story that both kids and adults could enjoy. It had to have memorable heroes that kids would want to be. That means cool costumes with awesome powers!

Illustrated By Elise Baron

The art in this book is not the typical boring ‘kids book’ illustrations. Ben partnered with the amazing Elise Baron because of her unique style that brings the heroes to life in a way that captivates children’s imaginations while leaving adults satisfied with her beautiful work.
