From School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Eleven-year-old Andy Whiffler was born with a big nose-and a big sense of smell to go with it. Initially picked on, he wins over his classmates with astounding olfactory feats. When a mysterious odor shuts down the school, Andy and his friends uncover a pollution plot by the crooked Environmental Clean Up (ECU) company. With the encouragement of his pals, he becomes Super Schnoz-ready to put an end to ECU's plans and save the day. With a superhero story line, short chapters, and gross-out humor, the book hits a number of reluctant-reader marks. Although the story is fairly formulaic, the light tone and good guys vs. bad guys plot give off a Saturday-morning cartoon vibe that will appeal to many readers. The cartoon-style illustrations are bold and friendly, mirroring the tone of the narrative and sometimes extending it. The book is wacky from page one, and fans of Dan Gutman's "My Weird School" series (HarperCollins) will approve. It treads some familiar "boy book" territory, but Super Schnoz should circulate well.-Travis Jonker, Wayland Union Schools, MIα(c) Copyright 2013.

"The writing, stylistically, has enough action and danger to keep it on the right side of parody, as well as a sense of humor that deftly mixes the absurd with gross-out jokes and clever wordplay. Super Schnoz smells like a winner, especially for reluctant readers." Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, August 1, 2013
