Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Reviewed with Bill Myers' The Case of the Giggling Geeks .

Gr. 2-4. These slim titles borrow the Captain Underpants formula of nonsense, gross-out humor, nonstop action, and kid heroics. Elementary-schooler Bernie, aka Secret Agent Dingledorf, has been chosen by a secret organization to fight crimes. In Chewable Worms, villains have convinced the world that worms are irresistibly tasty, and suddenly the planet is overrun with crawly creatures. In Giggling Geeks, evil Dr. Chuckles tries to sap the planet's most intelligent population by letting loose a virus of unstoppable giggles that afflicts people with high IQs. The flimsy, silly plots are backed up with even sillier details (Bernie receives messages from his beeping underwear and meets with his agency supervisor in toilet bowls), and there's a less-than-evolved approach to gender (in Worms, "Dad always grunts. With three daughters yakking away all the time, that's the only sound he can squeeze in"). But kids will like the action and wild laughs, and they'll likely forgive the heavy messages to respect individuality and to help others. Lively black-and-white drawings add to the humor and appeal.

More About the Author

Thanks for checking up on me. Probably best to go over to my web site: www.Billmyers.com for biography information. And if you're really bored, there's my fan site over on Facebook:
www.facebook.com/pages/Bill-Myers/44983396181 Oh, and one last thing. If you're a student and your class reads one of my books, I'll do a 'meet the author' 30 min question and answer session by speakerphone with your class from my office here in California. If you're a reader's group, the same thing goes...in which case I'd recommend ELI to really get the discussion juices flowing - at least until THE GOD HATER comes out in 2010. Thanks for stopping by!
