Summary:

"She may be plain. She may be the color of mud. She may even be slimy. But never underestimate an eel. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking eels are just long, slippery fishy-things that are boringly ordinary. Well, you're right! And you're wrong! Eels only seem ordinary because they are so unknowably extraordinary, they have bamboozled scientists for thousands of years. Olenka isn't just superpowered-she is also very good at keeping secrets. This new book is the humorous, informative, and highly illustrated Superpower Field Guide series will introduce readers to their new favorite hero: The eel" -- Front jacket flap.
