Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Brian and Sarah's family moves to a new town when their out-of-work father is offered a job. The children's first day at school is marred when their lunches are confiscated by Matt, a sixth-grade bully. But they do make friends with Robbie and Lisa, a brother and sister who empathize with the new kids' dismay over Matt. Sharing a love for superhero comic books, Brian and Robbie invent a persona, Wonder Kid, and use special effects to scare off Matt. This entry in the Springboard Book series is composed of short chapters and easy vocabulary, but it is sharply tuned in to genuine concerns of third and fourth graders. Matt, of course, seems a bit gullible to be falling for these tricks, but the end of the bully's reign is worth cheering for. Ages 7-9. (April)
School Library Journal
Gr 3-4 When Brian and his sister are mugged for their lunches by the school bully and his gang, a fellow comic book fan and his sister help him cook up a plan involving a superhero called Wonder Kid, and the bully soon has his comeuppance. While this plan is set up well through stories in the school newspaper, it seems too easy to convince the bully and his friends of Wonder Kid's powers. Overall, the plot moves smoothly, although Brian sometimes seems to think of himself in adult terms, and the dialogue is not always convincingly child-like. The friendship between the two pairs of siblings grows naturally, and Brian does become better friends with his own sister because of the experience. This is a serviceable book, but not an outstanding choice. Annette Curtis Klause, Montgomery County Department of Public Libraries, Md.

    A mix of super heros

    I think this book is really good. It is about a kid that has to deal with a bully/lunch snatcher. I think this author should write alot more books. I would recommend this book to all kids who like super heros. In the end wonder kid has a dual with the lunch snatcher. I hope you like this book like I did!!!!!!!!!!!!
