I am devilishly excited to host the very first stop of the Minion Blog Tour!
I promise it had nothing to do with the fact that I'm a secret super villain, bent on world domination myself. There was no blackmail involved. There are no sharks with lasers on their heads. There is no moon sized weapon of mass destruction aimed at said author's abode. There's just a teacher - a reader - who loves books about super powered kids. Yeah... that's it.
So come along and check out a fabulous vlog by Anderson, where he reveals HIS secret plans for world domination. What will he demand? Will he be successful? Will you win a copy of this amazing book by entering my giveaway?
(Also check out my review of the first book - Sidekicked - and Anderson's humorous stop on that blog tour!)

John David Anderson returns to the world of superheroes he created in Sidekicked with an entirely
new cast of characters in Minion, a funny and emotional companion to his first breakout tween
novel—perfect for superhero fans who also love the work of bestselling authors Rick Riordan, Louis
Sachar, and Frank Cottrell Boyce.
Michael Morn might be a villain, but he's really not a bad guy. When you live in New Liberty, known across the country as the City without a Super, there are only two kinds of people, after all: those who turn to crime and those who suffer. Michael and his adoptive father spend their days building boxes—special devices with mysterious abilities—which they sell to the mob at a price. They provide for each other, they look out for each other, and they'd never betray each other. But then a Super comes to town, and Michael's world is thrown into disarray. The Comet could destroy everything Michael and his dad have built, the safe and secure life they've made for themselves. And now Michael and his father face a choice: to hold tight to their life or to let it unravel.
