Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-Horace, who measures 30 inches tall, is the shortest 10-year-old in the town of Blootinville. When his taller, smarter, younger sister makes him eat her experimental cupcakes and wear a purple costume, he becomes a superhero. After flying around town and visiting friends, he decides to go after the man-eating giant guinea pig that has been cruising the school playground. Humorous illustrations add to the lighthearted tone of the story. This fantasy chapter book is reminiscent of Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" series (Scholastic), and reluctant readers will love the quick pace and silly characters.

Format: Paperback
Imagine what a news report this would be: Scientist Sister Creates Superhero Brother! It's certainly a story you'd want to read.

Poor Horace Splatley is not only the shortest kid in town, he has a sister who is bigger and younger! After experimenting with a crazy recipe for strange purple cupcakes, she forces Horace to eat them and wear a purple costume. (It's sure not easy having mad scientist in the family!)

But little Horace has the soul of a hero, and soon finds himself flying around town and confronting a giant guinea pig who appears in the schoolyard. Will Horace save the town? The story is fast-paced, very silly and very entertaining.

Horace Splattley: The Cupcaked Crusader is sure to have young readers begging for a second helping of laughs.

My girls didn't like this book. Maybe a gender specific book. They found it boring. I didn't get into it either.

I bought this for an 8 year old who had read the others. He loved it and reads it over and over.
