Overview

Mr. Particular: The World's Choosiest Champion! by Jason Kirschner

Meet Mr. Particular—the world’s choosiest champion! This superhero’s super picky: he says NO to squishy mud, gross green things, tucked-in shirts, humming, and anything with coconut. But, when his friends in the “Super-Duper Group” finally get fed up with his fussiness, can Mr. Particular prove that even the super-squeamish can save the day? This fun comic-book-style story will delight even the most finicky kids! “I enjoyed Mr. Particular and so will you. This is a great book for kids—a terrific story, beautifully illustrated.” —David Letterman

A fun adventure for the choosiest kids With the surge in popularity of graphic novels, this picture book told in graphic novel style is sure to be a hit with the superhero obsessed. Boys and girls are equally well represented as superheroes and the protagonist overcomes *some* of his fussiness to save the day! The endpapers are super fun; kids will pore over them.

A cute little children's book, written in the comic book style, which makes it more interesting, in my opinion. Children could have tons of fun with the inside covers alone, which are filled with ordinary items, with fun names and descriptions. It's got tons of different fonts to convey different feelings, plus it's just a superhero-type book that probably nearly every child could relate to. My copy also came with a tote bag with a picture of Mr. Particular on it, which I love. Note: I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.

My kids received a copy of this book on Sunday and I've already read it a few hundred times....my kids, who are not particular AT ALL, love the idea that there is a little boy in the world who acts this way. (FYI, my son spent a lot of time reading the comic book-esque ads on the inside covers.

This is a delightfully cute, cartoon style book that kids will really get a kick out of. Mr. Particular just likes things just so and no mess and no muddle and certain types of food are off limits. In short, he is particular. He is finicky. He is set in having things look, feel, and done a certain way - his way. He is the epitome of every little boy in that he is a caped super hero. This super hero is not a giant of a muscled man. No he is a kid. A boy. A dreaming-visions, strong-minded, little boy. And he is choosy about things and stuff. He is particular. And he is in a group of super-duper-friends who keep the universe safe from bad guys. Just don't let there be humming because Mr. Particular is very particular about humming. This is the author's debut children's picture book. I believe Jason Kirschner has a winner here and perhaps it is the beginning of lots of fun stuff for us to look forward to reading.
