Women of Marvel Goes to the Head of the Class with Author Preeti Chhibber

Hear about Chhibber's newest book for young readers, 'Avengers Assembly'!

Women of Marvel Avengers Assembly

Marvel Comics gives readers a peek into what young Super Heroes do when they're away from saving the world and hitting the books like normal kids. But on this week's episode of Women of Marvel, guest host and Marvel.com editor Christine Dinh finds out about a new school story starring Marvel's terrific teens! Author Preeti Chhibber discusses her latest book for young readers, Avengers Assembly, a high-spirited, middle-grade novel that pits Kamala Khan AKA Ms. Marvel, Miles Morales AKA Spider-Man, and Doreen Green AKA Squirrel Girl against everyday enemies like Super Villains, bullies... and peer pressure! The book, illustrated by James Lancett, is on sale now at bookstores and online.

Here's some of what Chhibber had to say:

“One thing I was surprised to hear is how accessible this is for kids who aren’t necessarily comfortable readers, which made me feel really good, because I feel very, very strongly about readers’ choice and that kids should have a say in what they get to read... [I]t’s about what gets them excited to read, whether it’s comic books or encyclopedias or whatever it is.”
