Publisher's Summary

Stuart's got problems...It's raining. He's bored. And worst of all, he's new in town, so he's got a lot to worry about. But what does a kid like Stuart need in order to have an adventure? A cape, of course.

Critic Reviews

"The story is hilariously descriptive....Its engaging flow makes for a great read-aloud." (School Library Journal)
"This entertaining book gets at the truth of children's feelings and is a good choice for reading aloud to a slightly younger crew." (Booklist)
"Readers who like Captain Underpants have a new choice, one that will make them howl and won't make their parents squirm." (Kirkus Reviews)

Imaginative

I have really enjoyed Sara Pennypacker's works in the Clementine series. I think a different narrator would make this book pop. It isn't bad in the narration, it just isn't kid like. I think Jessica Almasy would have made this book more enjoyable because her voice made the childish antics of Clementine jump out. This narrator sounds too adult.
