Overview


Andy Whiffler is your average eleven-year-old boy . . . except that his nose is so big he can use it to fly and his sense of smell is a hundred thousand times stronger than any human.

In the first book of this hilarious new series, Andy moves to a new school and is instantly picked on because of the size of his nose. But when his classmates discover how powerful his nose is, they decide he is more of a comic book hero than a nerd. One day Andy’s school is shut down due to toxic gases. Andy discovers that it’s all a secret plot for an evil corporation called the ECU (Environmental Clean Up) to take over the world. Andy and his friends decide that this is a job for Super Schnoz, Andy’s alter-ego. The rag-tag group of kids team up to take on the ECU and ensure school gets back in session (otherwise summer vacation will be ruined!).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The writing, stylistically, has enough action and danger to keep it on the right side of parody, as well as a sense of humor that deftly mixes the absurd with gross-out jokes and clever wordplay. Super Schnoz smells like a winner, especially for reluctant readers." Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, August 1, 2013
Kirkus Reviews
A prenatal pharmaceutical mix-up landed Andy with a "humongous honker" that makes him an object of ridicule at school but also gives him a "super-power worthy" sense of smell. Bullies at his new school laugh at Andy's nose until it gives early warning of imminent principal presence, earning Andy respect and friendship from his former tormentors. Peaceful existence is short-lived: A sudden, terrible smell fills the school, canceling classes. The kids would celebrate, except missed days will be made up during summer vacation, unless Environmental Clean Up, Inc. fixes the mess quickly. But Andy overhears a conversation that reveals all may not be on the up and up with ECU. His friends decide that he must use his nose to investigate--they design a superhero costume to turn him into crime-fighter Super Schnoz (they are sidekicks the Not-Right Brothers and Vivian). Experimenting, the team finds ingenious applications for Andy's nose, such as the power of flight (through inflating his nostrils) and cayenne-pepper attack sneezes. Every power's needed, as ECU's nefarious plan will ruin much more than summer break if Super Schnoz can't save the day. Illustrations highlight how outlandishly oversized Andy's nose is and back up visual gags. The writing, stylistically, has enough action and danger to keep it on the right side of parody, as well as a sense of humor that deftly mixes the absurd with gross-out jokes and clever wordplay. Super Schnoz smells like a winner, especially for reluctant readers. (Adventure. 8-12)

    My eight year old loved it! Next to Captain Underpants, this is his favorite book (and he reads about 100 chapter books a year). He liked that things happened that he didn't expect- Especially that he could fly.
