He and his friends decide to become crime fighters centered on Andy's powers. They'll become "Super Schnoz, the Not-Right Brothers, and Vivian." When their school closes due to mysterious reasons, Andy and his friends investigate. Something bad is brewing with an evil company that wants to pollute the environment. Super Schnoz, the Not-Right Brothers, and Vivian are going to save the day...as well as the school and the nation.
This isn't normally my type of reading material since it's a short chapter book, but I was entertained. I believe kids in late elementary and early middle school would enjoy this book. I can see boys and struggling readers selecting Super Schnoz, not to exclude other groups since many children will find this appealing. I received the galley from NetGalley, courtesy of the publisher.
*Note: This book could be used with a bullying lesson because in the beginning of the book, Andy is made fun of and has names called at him for his large nose. If a teacher could get past the poop/dirty diaper/stinky smells humor, it would make a good read aloud as it has teachable moments for anti-bullying.
I remember getting picked on like this in school as well so it brought back some painful memories, none were because I have a giant nose. Just before the halfway point my son started to loose interest. He wanted me to read other books at bedtime instead. I did convince him to keep going and once Andy became Super Schnoz he enjoyed it a little more. There are some cute play on words and references that a grown up will pick up on that helped with a giggle or two.
Not a bad story overall, we did enjoy it. This is good for little boys who love boogers and snot jokes. it has some slow parts but the characters are fun and the story is entertaining. The best part of the book is the fact I got some father son snuggle time in our glider before bed.
The book was a fun read and the characters are definitely memorable! As my daughter is in third grade, she thought this was a fun book and said that she would highly encourage other kids from her grade "or a few years older" to read this!
