Does This Cape Make Me Look Fat? by Chelsea Cain and Marc Mohan
Anyone who read even one or two comic books growing up will get a laugh out of this book, which has sections labeled "Advice for Sidekicks," "Tough Love: If Your Parent Is A Supervillain," and "What To Do If Your Sidekick Dies." ("Don't panic. Replace him as soon as possible with someone else who fits the costume. A close physical resemblance to the previous sidekick will help avoid awkward questions.") A great antidote for a hot, hot day.
