By N. S. VINE VOICE on May 21, 2005
Format: Paperback
Space, dinosaurs, bugs, mummies, and bodily functions. What topics could be more fascinating to guys when we're eight or nine or ten years old?

A couple of nights ago, I ran into friends at Pine Crest, our district's school for third through fifth graders. We were attending the annual Open House, looking through student portfolios, admiring art projects, and checking out photos from the Civil War enactment that took place earlier in the year during the class field trip to Angel Island.

When I asked what their son was currently enjoying reading, they told me that he actually wasn't much of a reader and hadn't been excited about anything since completing a FRINDLE year earlier.

Having offered to try and dig out a few things at home that might interest him, I wandered around the house later, trying to spot Something New for a boy who (our fifth grade daughter confided) "won't stay in his seat" and "turns everything into a gun." In short, a typical male action figure.

UPS to the rescue!

So, yesterday morning I'm sitting around reading a superb YA novel that I'll be reviewing soon, and the guy with the brown suit and the brown truck bounces up our long, bumpy driveway and drops off a thin package with the perfect new books for my friends' son.

One hundred pages per episode, a cross between the good-hearted cartoon wackiness of CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS (Dav Pilkey is an absolute god at Pine Crest.) and the informationality of THE MAGIC TREE HOUSE, CAPTAIN FACT is about to become the latest version of the British Invasion.

Cliff Thornhill is the world's worst TV weatherman. His sidekick Puddles is the world's only TV weatherdog.

As a 2nd grade teacher in an urban school district, I'm always looking for new series to excite the reluctant readers that are in my classroom. I bought this book with the hopes that it would stand the test of the classroom!

Knife and Packer's first book in this new series is a mixed bag of tricks. The book's format is most similar to that of the original Magic School Bus series, where the narrative of the story is broken up with the inclusion of scientific facts.

On the positive side are brief chapters with cliffhanger endings that are sure to get kids to want to turn to the next page. Also on the bright side is the wealth of science facts that accompany the story. Negatively, the science facts disrupt the flow of the story, and the story itself seems very forced.

This is an engaging story that is sure to excite 2nd-4th grade boys, especially ones who like superheroes and space. I do wonder what will happen when they discover that the superhero has no super powers.

My son is in the 2nd grade and loved this book! He really enjoys space subject's right now in his learning and this book hit the spot! It has been tough for me to find space books that are chapter books and not just a fact book. He really likes going back through to the "Fact Attack" pages and reading them again to ask mommy more questions. LOL! Unlike the other review I feel that Captain Fact does have "Super Powers" which are his "Fact Attack" episodes, he has "Super Brain Power". It is a fun book to read and any boy that likes space and chapter books will love it!
Autism Speaks ... it is time to listen!
