Andy Whiffler has a huge nose and a great sense of smell. For 11 years this has been something of a curse, but now it has led Andy to some new friends. When Andy discovers a plot to destroy their home town, the comic-loving kids become a crime-fighting team - "Super Schnoz and the Not-Right Brothers and Vivian." Can five kids save a town from a toxic-stink plot?
This was a fun book! I can already picture students at school who would love this one - a super hero story with a bit of a gross-factor. Great nose jokes - The school is James Durante Elementary School and the principal is named Cyrano. I think this will appeal to fans of Captain Underpants - or kids who think they have gotten a little old for Captain Underpants - as well as comic/superhero fans.
(I received an electronic review copy of this book from the publisher as part of the blog tour.)
