Grow Up, the fourth installment of the Daniel Boom books, features the superhero who has no volume control on his voice--hence, Loud Boy! And who are the other young heroes in the book? You have Chatterbox, Destructo-Kid, Tantrum Girl, and Fidget. Yes, the fact that Steinberg has created superheroes from habits that kids are usually disciplined for --whether it be talking too loud or too much, fidgeting, or destroying something-- is just pure genius.
The superheroes are at it again, but in Grow Up!, the all-kids crimefighting crew are acting like old people! It seems as though the mastermind behind K.R. Industries, Doctor Docter, comes up with a plan to sap their youth energy and turn them into senior citizens. Loud Boy is walking with a cane, Destructo Kid is crazy for bingo, Fidget is the new shuffleboard king of the senior center and Chatterbox is the one with the granny bag and beehive hairdo. But if you think the mastermind can beat our superheroes just because they're old, well, the world's about to change, amigo!
The writing is clever and funny and will keep young readers wanting more. I had to fight my four year old for the book, since he kept stealing it from me. I was really amazed at the bright, vibrant illustrations and could easily picture this as a cartoon. Steinberg is an animation producer who has worked on classic animated films such as The Land Before Time, Hercules, Mulan, Meet the Robinsons and Tarzan. And to team him up with Brian Smith, who has previously worked at Marvel Comics and Nickelodeon, you have quite a superhero duo when it comes to creating amazing children's books that will dominate the world!
