Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me as his reader.Well ds (and I) really enjoyed this title even more so than usual. This is a very fun story that doesn't follow the usual supervillan plot of the other books in the series. Instead, this time, we have two cyborg salamanders who idolize Professor Zoom, follow him home, find a giant robot and get it working. They then proceed to cause chaos in Central City. Luckily The Flash's pet turtle the Terrific Whatzit is nearby to rescue the day. Ds had a great time reading this one and enjoyed the antics of both Whatzit and the newts. Being autistic he doesn't often get a lot of humour unless it is right in your face but he laughed all the way through at the shenanigans of cyborg newts, X-43 and Bit-Bit. He even got 2 out of the 3 jokes at the back of the book! He usually doesn't get any of them. Lots of fun had by all and one of our favourites in this entertaining series written at a low reading level but suitable for a wide range of ages who are still interested in superheroes. Ds is 11 and mum is forty-{cough}.

Two little newts in a pet store have have dreams of joining super-villain Professor Zoom. They escape from the store and hitch a ride in the professor's bag. When they reach the secret villain lab they discover a giant robot that the professor is working on. Hoping to impress the man they admire, they work on the robot to get him working. They take him on a destructive test run. Super-pet hero Whatzit comes to the rescue and shuts down the robot. After saving the town, Whatzit returns the salamanders to the pet store. The book begins with a chart style write-up on all of the main characters. Brightly colored illustrations and colorful fonts bring the story to life. The imaginative story will appeal to young readers. The large font, comic style writing, and fast paced story make this a great book for reluctant readers. My son really enjoyed this book and laughed at the ending. He definitely wanted to keep the book so he could read it again. I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
