Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Raina Sedore
A mad scientist is preying upon local elementary school students. After an injection, the children find themselves taking on the properties of various objects. Those objects range from construction vehicles to office products to the three items featured in the popular hand game "Rock, Paper, Scissors." What follows is a wild, superhero-inspired adventure focusing on the trials and mishaps of Chip, whose head grows in size and turns into rock whenever he's in stressful circumstances. Chip's best friend, Spencer, takes on the identity of Scissorlegz, and the school bully, Troy, becomes imbued with the advantages of paper. Jennings' illustrations are angular and brightly colored. Although the plot and character development is thin, the action sequences and wild superhero designs will attract reluctant readers. The panel arrangements are easy to follow and the story builds to a satisfying climax. This gimmicky concept will catch the attention of reluctant readers and keep them reading as more wild, super-powered characters are introduced. Reviewer: Raina Sedore
