Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Young readers who want exciting, fun, LOUD comic-book adventures with young superpowered heroes will enjoy this wildly colorful and zany book.
Children's Literature - Michael Jung
Many grownups believe these kids suffer from ADD, chattiness, temper fits, destructive behavior, and abnormally loud voices. Actually, such disorders are superpowers that let the kids become the perpetual-moving Fidget, know-it-all Chatterbox, raging Tantrum Girl, chaotic Destructo-Kid, and sonic-powered Loud Boy. In this latest adventure, the kids must protect their Uncle Stanley's Flooggget, a device that can fax objects anywhere in the world, from the villainous Otis "Old Fogey" Fogelman. But when Old Fogey manages to steal the Flooggget, he modifies it to trap over a million kids in the video game Pig Planet. To save them, Loud Boy must enter the game and capture the Golden Floo, which is the only object that can free a player. But even if he finds the Floo, can he use it to free over a million kids? The third book in "The Adventures of Daniel Boom AKA Loud Boy" series, this offers a Cartoon Network-type story with plenty of fast-paced action. Kids will enjoy the sight gags illustrator Brian Smith includes in the artwork, although most of the visual humor in the fight scenes would probably translate better to animation than still drawings. The plot, on the other hand, is a fairly unambitious superhero story with hyperactive kids and a goofy villain—although it will entertain its target audience of kids under twelve.
