Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-8

Joey Johnson has always moved too quickly and been too impatient for his own good. But on the first day of school after summer vacation, his metabolism speeds up to superhuman proportions, and that's when things really get crazy. On the plus side, Joey learns the advantages of having everyone else frozen in time, especially during a brutal game of dodgeball when he gets the opportunity to turn the tables on the class bullies. But on the minus side, different types of shifty people show up at his house trying to capitalize on his amazing speed. This is a fast and fluffy book with bright, colorful, and zany artwork in the style of "Ren & Stimpy" cartoons. The good guys are likable, especially Joey's friend Freddy, who gets a unique opportunity to save the day. The bad guys are evil but hilarious, especially Mr. Seymour Haliburton Itchez (of Burnz and Itchez Pharmaceuticals) and his inept henchmen, who need to spend some quality time with a family therapist.-Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library
