Overview

On the outskirts of Gordonville, deep in the heart of the burkeburke hills, lives a creature so strong, so fearsome and so meaty.Yes, that's right meaty.that even the most fearless, tender and breaded of heroes might not be strong enough to foil him. He's Massive Meatloaf Man. And once Fernando Goldberg gets a load of the meaty monster, he decides it may just be best to steer clear. But Dirk Hamstone has other ideas. He aims to find fame and fortune by luring the Loaf in and putting him on display. Does Dirk care that trying to tame the beefy barbarian is endangering himself, his classmates, and everyone else the maniacal meatman comes across carnivore, vegetarian, or even vegan? Not a chance! It will take a whole lot of quick-thinking to cut the mustard-or, er, the ketchup-once this ferocious, succulent and sumptuous beast unleashes his fleshy fury onto the innocent citizens of Gordonville. Will Super Chicken Nugget Boy send the creature packing? Or will the Massive Meatloaf Man make mincemeat of the entire town?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greta Holt
Karl Nasty Foothead has stolen thousands of socks from the innocent residents of Gordonville. It is up to Super Chicken Nugget Boy to stop him and recover the socks. Fwap! Pee-yew. The fight is on, and Nasty is winning. Nugget Boy can overcome the Foot only after tickling him. The police carry Nasty Foothead off, and the socks are saved. Another victory for the Nug! The scene switches to Display and Relay (show and tell) day at school. The evil bully Dirk displays a snake, which has just feasted on a porcupine. Dirk's victory is short-lived, though, because the unassuming Fern—actually SCN Boy—remembers that he is still carrying Nasty Foothead's pinkie toe ring. The crowd of students goes wild. Dirk is furious. It is his destiny, he believes, to be the greatest Displayer/Relayer of all time. Fern and his friend Lester, who is in charge of spraying Fern with ketchup (Splat! Kerblam!), decide to go camping in the hills. Dirk and his sidekick Snort play dirty tricks on the two friends, but all the boys have a scary encounter with Massive Meatloaf Man who lives in the forest. Dirk decides to capture the Meatloaf Man and show him at school. He does manage to capture Meatloaf and cage him to display. Problems, a la King Kong, ensue. The Meatloaf Man escapes, pursues Ms. Durbindin, and is nearly consumed by the Meatloaf Lovers society. Fern must morph into Super Chicken Nugget Boy and save the day. In his fourth Super Chicken Nugget Boy book, Lewis creates a kid-sized, comic world, and Gilpin provides exaggerated, superhero pictures. Nothing deep here, just lots of (Aarrgghh!) kid fun.

Meet the Author

Josh Lewis writes books. When he's not doing that he does other things, like sometimes he sleeps and sometimes he snores and sometimes his wife thumps him on his head to get him to stop and sometimes he rides the train and imagines what it would be like if all people had beards. This is Josh's fourth book for young readers but definitely not his last because he just learned how to count to five, so he wants to write at least that many. He lives in New York City with his wife and daughter.

Stephen Gilpin is the illustrator of over 20 picture books. He currently lives in Kansas with his wife Angie and their children. He only knows a few jokes, but all of them are funny and rather unfit for sharing in mixed company. He enjoys cycling, bagpiping, and long walks on the beach.
