Grade 3-6 - The endearing cyber-superhero, Shredderman, otherwise known as Nolan Byrd, exposes yet another annoying nuisance through the use of his anonymous Web site. The 11-year-old's favorite television superhero, The Gecko, comes to his hometown of Cedar Valley to shoot an episode, and Nolan's father, a newspaper reporter, is assigned to cover the story. The boy not only gets to meet Chase Morton, but also plays video games with him, and the two form a friendship. School bully Bubba Bixby also wants to meet the popular on-screen personality, causing even more tension between the two boys. As Nolan witnesses Bubba's resentment toward him, he learns that sometimes being a superhero is about "being bigger than yourself," and invites Bubba to meet Chase. Nolan is also successful in exposing an unethical photographer, causing quite a stir in the journalism community. The protagonist's strength in rising above his fear of Bubba and showing compassion for him is gently and poignantly portrayed. Reluctant readers will find this book accessible, and the use of modern technology to fight the "bad guys" is an appealing inclusion. - Jennifer Cogan, Enoch Pratt Free Library, Baltimore, MD

Gr. 3-5. Nolan Byrd is delighted to learn that the cast of his favorite television show The Gecko and Sticky is coming to his town to film an episode. He's even more pleased when his journalist father announces that he's been assigned to interview Chase Morton, the young star of the show, and invites Nolan along. Chase and Nolan hit it off immediately, and Chase confesses his fear of a whacked-out reporter called the Mole, who has been stalking him. Nolan takes a picture of the Mole committing an act of vandalism and spreads the information through his Internet alter ego, Shredderman. At the same time, Nolan reaches out to his nemesis, Bubba Bixby. This is the third in the Shredderman series, all of which feature short chapters and a lighthearted, fast-moving story, with Nolan serving as a true hero, despite his geeky ways. Todd Morning

He got done with both of the books we ordered, in the same week. This is the kid who can't see any reason to read, except the instructions on the video games! Somehow the subject matter is interesting to him!
