Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Maria Lamattina EdD.
Halo Nightly (Princess Candy) is back, using her super powers to fight the Evil Echo, a shape shifter out to win Cody Phinn's attention. As a shape shifter, Echo is able to make people believe she's Halo—or at least the dark side of Halo. Echo goes around doing things that are uncharacteristic of Halo who is shocked when even her grandmother accuses her of doing something wrong. When confronted by Halo, Echo eats some of Halo's magic candy, thinking she'll be able to vanquish Halo. But good conquers evil and Halo and Cody are reunited. This female superhero will, undoubtedly, appeal to young girls. The authors have added some features that make the book of use in the classroom. One is the creative way in which they profile the super-villain, Evil Echo. The basic facts are presented in the format of the nutritional information found on food product packages. Some trivia questions and answers related to something in the book are also included (in this case, questions about jelly beans). About the Author and About the Illustrator paragraphs are also included, and can serve as a model for student writing projects. Three other helpful features are the glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts. The Evil Echo is a fun, easy to read but high interest book that should prove to be a welcome addition to a diverse classroom library. Reviewer: Maria Lamattina, EdD.
