Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-This funny picture book features a child who just loves danger. Readers who don't know Kel Gilligan are clearly unaware of his daring feats that have earned him the nickname "The Boy Without Fear." He earnestly recollects his past triumphs in pictures designed to look like freeze frames of his life with great comical effect. The stunned faces on the "audience" as Kel successfully chews and swallows broccoli are hilarious, and their comments will inspire many giggles. Those shy of potty humor may not enjoy the image of Kel's bare bottom and the applause after he successfully vanquishes a toilet, but, let's be honest; the intended audience will be rolling on the floor laughing at these silly antics. After Kel's strenuous day of derring-do, readers see that he is just like many children when it comes to the biggest obstacle of all-sleeping in his own bed. Santat's illustrations, created in Photoshop, are busy, grandiose, loud, and proud, just like Kel Gilligan. They add depth and humor to the action.-Alison Donnelly, Collinsville Memorial Public Library, ILα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist

Kel Gilligan is one tough little dude. They call him “the boy without fear.” His “super scary stunts“ include everything from eating broccoli to using the potty, dressing himself, taking a bath, not interrupting his mother while she talks on the phone, and going to bed without first checking the room for monsters. This last “stunt” doesn’t go well and Kel ends up in bed with his parents, but saves face by declaring that he is there to protect them. Santat’s lively comic illustrations depict Kel outfitted in a crash helmet and caped daredevil costume narrating each of his death-defying acts for a spellbound audience (i.e., his family). The author and illustrator roll out all the stops to keep things crazed. For example,a video-camera display to capture the endurance test of the potty. Some illustrations simulate a video-camera display to heighten the dramatics, while the family gasps in awe: “He knows no fear!” A fantasy romp destined to please preschoolers and parents alike who are faced with getting through the day-to-day tasks that at times feel insurmountable. Preschool-Grade 2. --Randall Enos

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Margaret C. VINE VOICE on November 28, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Full of fun and funny, this is definitely a "boy" book, but I have no doubt my preschool daughter will be in fits of laughter when we read it. She is currently as well mastering the "daredevil" tasks from eating broccoli to sleeping in her own bed (and staying there). Part of the learning process is seeing other kids with similar experiences and I am sure reading and rereading this book will be fun and beneficial to her learning things on her own. Not very colorful but still vivid and vibrant illustrations make these pages full.

*Thanks to Abrams for providing a copy for review.*

Format: Hardcover
I laughed all the way through this book. Kel Gilligan's tough attitude as he faces common childhood challenges including broccoli, the Potty of Doom, a bath, and getting dressed is giggle-inducing. The way the author takes these seemingly simple activities and turns each into a stunt of giant proportions is very entertaining. I also like the way the illustrator made some of the illustrations seem as if they are being viewed through a video camera lens. There are a couple of bare bottom pictures which I thought added to the humor, for the younger set anyway, older kids might be a bit shocked. The dramatic text and very expressive illustrations make this a great book for sharing individually or with a group. I highly recommend this one.

This book is hysterical. Kel tackles all the truly hard things in life - eating broccoli, being quiet while mommy talks on the phone, etc- with gusto and bravery! It turns a child into a hero just for doing every day tasks parents wish their kids would do!

This book is hilarious! My two sons, five and two, love it and so does my seven year old nephew and 3 year old niece! My nephew likes to read it to the other kids and they all enjoy listening to it and looking at the fun pictures. One of the best children's books I have read in a long time!

Teasing the baby about the INCREDIBLE, IMPOSSIBLE stunts he tackles -- this book is funny. Dressing himself (ooh, ahh), pooping in the potty (ooh, ahh), eating vegetables (wild applause), etc.

It's funny for your older kids, who DEFINITELY think their parents are making too big of a deal about the baby's "accomplishments" and milestones.

Fun for the family.

GREAT illustrations.
