Overview

The nugget is back!

After his tasty alter-ego felled the Furious Fry, Fern Goldberg went back to being his regular skinny self at Bert Lahr Elementary. But when a mad food scientist named Dr. Myron Ned-Grant—inventor of the thirty-pronged fork and other culinary contraptions—comes for a friendly school visit, Bert Lahr's head bully Dirk Hamstone hits a very big sore spot, pointing out that "Ned-Grant" sounds kind of like "eggplant." Tormented by his nasty nickname, poor Dr. Ned-Grant finally succumbs the dark side-that is, the dark purple side. Now it's up to Super Chicken Nugget Boy to stop an army of evil eggplants bent on world domination!
Villainous vegetables beware! Here comes the most formidable food fighter in history!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula Rohrlick
Fern Goldberg attends Bert Lahr Elementary School, and he is in the audience when one of its most famous graduates, food scientist Dr. Ned-Grant, comes to speak to the students about his job. Unfortunately, also in the audience is the school bully, Dirk Hamstone, who points out that Dr. Ned-Grant's name rhymes with "eggplant," an old taunt that infuriates the scientist. Dr. Ned-Grant turns into a mad food scientist, out to get revenge and conquer the world by creating a monstrous Blenderbot that flings food and an army of eggplants. Fern's alter ego, Super Chicken Nugget Boy, and his sidekick, Arnie the Awesome Amphibian, must spring into action to battle the evil scientist and the creatures he has created, and there is lots of messy, silly action along the way. This wacky tale, which includes some graphic novel sequences as well as cartoonish black-and-white illustrations, is a sequel to Super Chicken Nugget Boy and the Furious Fry. Its satiric, off-the-wall humor will appeal to fans of Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants series, and to reluctant readers as well. Reviewer: Paula Rohrlick
