Grade 4-6–This sequel to Leon and the Spitting Image (HarperCollins, 2003) offers the same laughs and preponderance of plot points involving saliva. Here, Leon Zeisel, potato-chip collector extraordinaire, works hard to create a voodoo doll powered by spit that will give school bully Lumpkin a turbowedgie. In the meantime, an invigorating and unorthodox new science teacher gets his class involved in a semester of studying Leons beloved snack, and the fifth grader enters the Chipapalooza, a potato-chip trivia and taste-test competition. Leons friends Lily-Matisse and P.W. continue to be his abettors, and he still lives in his mothers hotel with an extended family of employees and often-bizarre animals traipsing through the hallways. Playful drawings throughout, including presidential portrait chips on the endpapers, add greatly to the fun. Kids will enjoy this rollicking comedy.–B.

Gr. 3-6. In this sequel to Leon and the Spitting Image (2003), fifth-grader Leon Zeisel plans to take revenge upon his nemesis, bully Henry Lumpkin, by using an animated soft-sculpture doll. Despite earlier success with a figure of his fourth-grade teacher, Leon's "Lumpy" action figure doesn't work, and as Leon tries to correct the doll's problems, he becomes sidetracked by a science curriculum revolving around potato chips and a plan to save science teacher Franklin Sparks from termination. When success finally comes, revenge is sweet. Although technically a fantasy (Lumpy becomes animated in part by an application of spit), the story contains a great deal of accurate science. Quirky but likable characters, a focus on fifth-grade preoccupations (including wedgies), and some very bad puns will further endear this story to its intended audience. Kay Weisman
