Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tima Murrell
Two little newts in a pet store have dreams of joining super-villain Professor Zoom. They escape from the store and hitch a ride in the professor’s bag. When they reach the secret villain lab they discover a giant robot that the professor is working on. Hoping to impress the man they admire, they work on the robot. They take the robot on a destructive test run. Super-pet hero Whatzit comes to the rescue and shuts down the robot. After saving the town, Whatzit returns the salamanders to the pet store. The book begins with a chart write-up about all of the main characters. Brightly colored illustrations and colorful fonts bring the story to life. The large font, comic style writing, and imaginative and fast paced story make this a great book for reluctant readers. Reviewer: Tima Murrell; Ages 6 to 9.

    My son really enjoyed this book and laughed at the ending. He definitely wanted to keep the book so he could read it again.

    I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
