Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—Fern Goldberg, aka Super Chicken Nugget Boy, is back. This time, he and his friend Lester narrowly escape a mysterious pizza box that falls from the sky. It contains what looks like an ordinary pizza but turns out to be an extraterrestrial Pizza Person. Accompanying it is an entire army of Pizza People, on a mission to bring home pizza ingredients in hopes of saving their planet. Of course, individuals' reactions vary; some folks don't believe in them, some try to eat them, and the boys' teacher even builds a missile launcher to destroy Planet Pizza. In the end, it's up to Super Chicken Nugget Boy and Arnie the Awesome Amphibian to help the aliens and their planet. Large, easy-to-read font; frequent black-and-white illustrations, and a quickly moving plot make this a good choice for readers who are new to chapter books—particularly those whose tastes lean toward the wacky.—Amanda Moss Struckmeyer, Middleton Public Library, WI
Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Nighttime games in the backyard turn strange for Fernando Goldberg (a.k.a. Fern) and best friend Lester McGregor when a mysterious pizza falls from the sky. Unfortunately, their dog Stanley reaches it before they do, and snatches it in his mouth. The boys take the space pizza to school to get their science teacher's advice, but he does not believe them. Who would? Bully Dirk Hamstone just might—after he eats the pizza, only to have it climb back out of his mouth later. As the Pizza Person heads out the door though, he has no proof. The pizza plot thickens as Pizza Day dawns in the school cafeteria, with nary a pizza ingredient in sight. Saucy drips on the floor lead the way out to the schoolyard. The children arrive just in time for the arrival of a giant space pizza, loaded with more Pizza People. Chaos ensues. Lester squirts Fern with a packet of ketchup, transforming him into Super Chicken Nugget Boy. Later, in detention, the boys learn that the Pizza People's arrival on earth is not an act of hostility but rather desperation. Worse, their plight is harder now that the science teacher has constructed a space ray to destroy their planet! Having fought against them, will Super Chicken Nugget Boy fight for them? Will he save the Pizza People—or destroy them once and for all? The cover declares that fans of Captain Underpants and Franny K. Stein will enjoy this book. Perhaps that is true. Coming into this third book in the series with no explanation of Fern's transformative power, this reviewer did not find much to enjoy in its pages. The story is paced for television, and plot contrivances abound. Abundant illustrations may draw attention to this book among reluctant readers. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
