Our hero, Laser Moose, (you know, a Moose with laser eyes), suspects that the cute new Chickadee in the forest is actually pure distilled evil. Laser Moose's sidekick, Rabbit Boy, isn't convinced. But every time something bad happens that Chickadee is nearby. Coincidence? Or proof of evil? Meanwhile, Cyborgupine, (you know, a cyborg porcupine), has built a battle robot that uses disco ball mirrors to reflect Laser Moose's laser bolts. How will LM and RB stop him when a moose without laser eyes is just a moose?
We have an interesting story about jumping to conclusions without proof. We have a good and evil conflict where good has to think its way out of trouble. At one point Laser Moose doubts himself and Rabbit Boy has to buck him up. As I say, classic stuff.
Laser Moose is a more interesting and reliable hero than most of the grownup ones I've read lately. Rabbit Boy is perceptive, steadfast and loyal. Other forest creatures are fine supporting characters who comment on the action. Cyborgupine is a great villain - not too scary, but definitely a bad guy. The plot is a bit twisty and very clever, but easy enough for a little reader to follow. Tension builds to a final throw down, and the story follows all of the superhero rules for plot developments and pacing. The drawings are crisp and bold and it's always clear what's happening. There are no fart jokes or boogers or anything like that. One feels that that sort of thing would be beneath this story. This book is silly, not stupid, and it doesn't take cheap shortcuts.
So, there was a lot more here than I expected, and it was all pretty good. A nice find.
(Please note that I received a free advance will-self-destruct-in-x-days Adobe Digital copy of this book without a review requirement, or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)
I liked this much better than the first Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy book. In fact, I might suggest to just skip book one and pick up the series here (since the characters are reintroduced here and book one spends most of its time introducing them you aren’t missing much). Laser Moose learns some important lessons about true worth and jumping to conclusions, and he and Rabbit Boy employ some creative problem solving to save the day. Kids can have fun debating whether or not Chickadee is evil or not since the evidence isn’t super conclusive one way or the other. If you know a lower grade student who is struggling getting into reading and likes unique superheroes, this might be just the thing. And you can learn some unique dance moves from Rabbit Boy in the back of the book too.
Notes on content: No language issues. No sexual content or decency issues. Some animals get hit by wayward laser beams but just get flesh wounds that are depicted with a little red.
I received an ARC of this title from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
