Comic books can seem intimidating. If you go into a comic book store, you’re confronted with walls and walls of paper and no road map that tells you where to start.

Even though Kamala Khan has only been around for a few years, it feels like she's been Ms Marvel for ages -- inspiring kids all over the world with her amazing comic book. So really, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Kamala will star in a new kids-focused reading book that tackles issues surrounding bullying and gender-based discrimination.
