Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Soundwave is definitely into himself. His job is to protect pumps and processors of all the other Deceptions. He does this and he does extremely well because he believes he is the best. However, in order to achieve his goal he must know everything about everyone and everything around him. He knows that knowledge is power. Soundwave surprises himself towards the end of the book when he realizes that instead of doing something because he was told to do it, he is doing something because it is the right thing to do. There is not much dialogue between individuals. Most of the words are boxed in green and are Soundwave's thoughts. The font inside these boxes is extremely small making the text difficult to read. I was impressed with some of the vocabulary words used. For example: bemoaning, facsimile, succinct, and avarice. I am assuming this is a stand-alone because it has the words "the end" on the last page. Even though it was a stand-alone I had to read it several times to completely understand exactly what was going on. I have a problem with all the words being in capital letters because it sends a mixed message to young students. This book does not offer excitement, drama, humor, or anything else that that would spur me to want to read another "Transformer" story. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
