Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4–Martin Bridge returns in another book that's just as funny as the previous titles in the series. In the first chapter, he is on an overnight camping trip with the Junior Badgers, including his prankster friend, Alex. In the second chapter, Martin has to help his Dad fix the lawn mower during his favorite show. However, he discovers this time spent with his father has fostered a closer bond and has taught him mechanical skills that he can share with his friends. In the end, he helps decorate the lawn mower with lightning bolts because Dad's favorite superhero from childhood was Volt Thundercloud. Kelly's expressive, quirky drawings in graphite and charcoal with digital shading complement the text. The book's delightful characters and engaging stories will provide a boy-centered alternative to Barbara Park's Junie B. Jones books and Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House series (both Random).–Debbie Stewart Hoskins, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI
