Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Some books are just meant to be read by boys and this is one of them. With characters named Dr. Snotenstein and Jimmy Sniffles it should not surprise the reader to know that the power of a nose will be in the story. Jimmy is a great kid and is known for his helpfulness at school. One day when a bully takes a student's lunch money, Jimmy is able to sniff the money out of the bully's hand into his nose and then snort the change back into the student's hand. A little gross, but successful. Lurking in the corner is an evil twin of Jimmy made by Dr. Snotenstein, and this twin starts playing all kinds of dirty tricks on students. Jimmy must find a way to rid the school of this impersonator. Can Jimmy figure a way to destroy this awful "thing"? This book is written in graphic format that is a favorite of mine. It is perfect for students who are reluctant readers and never seem to finish a book on their own. The full-color graphics make an enormous impact on the story. At the end of the book is a glossary and mini biographies about the author and illustrator. There are two pages of interesting facts about twins, discussion questions, and writing prompts. Also included is a list of web sites that might be of interest to the reader. This is a funny story, but I must warn you that you may never eat pizza again after you read what toppings Dr. Snotenstein uses on pizzas.

Gr 2-4
Eek and Ack, twins from the Great Goo Galaxy, are out to conquer Earth. After their annoying sister tattles on them for trying to blow it up, their dad instructs them to find a more peaceful means for taking over the planet. Eek comes up with a foolproof plan, and the twins begin to collect snottle bugs, which are to be used to cover Earth in green ooze, but that idea gets them into a huge mess. The art takes full advantage of the silly situation when the boys' creations come to life. In the second book, Jimmy Sniffles and his superpowered nose return to fight the evil Dr. Von Snotenstein. This time, however, Jimmy has a cold, and his medicine has zapped his sense of smell. This leaves the perfect opening for the evil doctor to take over the city with his awful Snot-Bots. Luckily, Jimmy comes up with a way to thwart him, and the villain is defeated-for now. The cartoons are bold and captivating, and the gross humor will surely bring in even the most reluctant of readers.
