Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is another adventure in the series, "Horace Splattly, The Cupcaked Crusader." This time, Horace, a thirty-inch-tall, ten-year-old, must conquer the forces behind the daily rained-out recesses. Horace relies upon the masterful efforts of his mad scientist sister to create the proper ingredients for a magical cupcake. This cupcake will not only give him the ability to suck up the perpetual rain cloud hanging over the playground, but also give him the ability to capture the evil rain-maker. Horace's two best friends, twins Xax and Augie, try and help him in his efforts to capture the villain. They initially suspect their feared (and outright mean) science teacher, Mr. Dienow. However, a trip to his home reveals his innocence and the friends must start from scratch. It is Horace who eventually realizes that he holds the key to the villain's identity and heart; and it is he who must combine cupcake powers with compassion to ultimately create sunny skies over the school's playground once again. This fantastical story will entertain readers who enjoy suspense, mystery, a bit of absurdity, and unlikely heroes. Characters within the story speak unkindly at times and words like "stupid" are used frequently. The black and white illustrations will add to the already racing imagination of the reader. 2004, Dutton Children's Books, Ages 7 to 12.
