School Library Journal
When 13-year-old Michael eats the entire pan of his mom's triple chocolate fudge brownies, something strange happens. He is no longer the popular class clown, sitting in the back of the room. Instead, he has turned into a brainiac, excelling in all of his work and snagging the lead role in the school play. It turns out that his father's computer chip ended up in the cakes and, by eating them, Michael has gained all of its knowledge. What ensues are crazy, and often funny, attempts at destroying the chip while it is still inside him. This humorous story is a quick and easy read. Children will relate to Michael, as well as to his friends Hil and Sludge, and will take to them quickly as they try to destroy the chip, get through school, and fend off Harold, Michael's enemy. The fast pace of the book will also appeal to reluctant readers.
