Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-Cody Lee Carson is resolved to become a "changed man." Starting fifth grade at a new school in a new town means that nobody knows about his Old Cody "doofus, bozo-brained" mess-up tendencies, including the infamous Tweety Bird-underwear-in-the-spotlight episode. The New Me Journal of the boy's bumpy transformation from hapless fourth grader to confident fifth-grade graduate comes complete with stories of sibling strife, classmate clashes, student council elections, and his first big crush. This lively and believable record of Cody's attempt to put his best foot forward and figure out where he fits in has great appeal for middle graders who are themselves experiencing the awful awkwardnesses of preadolescence, reinventions of self, science fairs, and fallings-out with friends. With its ever-so-catchy title and its many practical jokes (appropriate for a protagonist with an April 1st birthday), it's a sort of male companion for Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's early "Alice" (Atheneum) and "Boys"/"Girls" battle books (Delacorte). A well-paced, positive, and pleasant read.

From Booklist

Gr. 3-6. Cody Carson has moved to a new town, and he is looking forward to a new start. No more embarrassing behavior, just triumphs. Written in diary form, this chronicles how Cody does. Pretty well as it turns out, rescuing a hamster, improving his grades, even running for class president. Of course, there are some down moments, including his effort to toilet train his cat (using the real toilet) and a misguided valentine for the first girl he likes. Birdseye uses the diary format to good advantage, showing in funny, first-person observations that boys have the same emotional ups and downs that girls do. And yes, there is much talk of stinking feet and passing gas. The attention-attracting title and the great cover (a crowd of children rushing away from hovering underwear), add to the sense of silly, middle-grade fun. Ilene Cooper

Format: Hardcover
Cody Carson faces fifth grade with a journal intended to record his new life in a new school, where nobody should suspect he was a mess-up onstage. His attempt to change his personality and avoid embarrassment and disaster soon proves disastrous as he faces an attack of mutant underwear and a blow to his newfound ego. Hilarious and good leisure material, Attack Of The Mutant Underwear is highly recommended reading.

I purchased this book for my classroom of fifth graders. It is one of the Florida Sunshine State Reader's selections for 2006-07. The students have passed the word, "It's a good book." They have recommended it to each other, high praise indeed. Many have gone searching for more books by this author.

I've read this book aloud to children several times. It is a very fun read and the kids love it. There are several passages that have the readers laughing out loud. Well written and full of antics, this is a fun story that leaves the kids clamoring for more.
