Salamander Smack Down

Salamander Smack Down
John Sazaklis
 Two little newts in a pet store have have dreams of joining super-villain Professor Zoom. They escape from the store and hitch a ride in the professor's bag. When they reach the secret villain lab they discover a giant robot that the professor is working on. Hoping to impress the man they admire, they work on the robot to get him working. They take him on a destructive test run. Super-pet hero Whatzit comes to the rescue and shuts down the robot. After saving the town, Whatzit returns the salamanders to the pet store. The book begins with a chart style write-up on all of the main characters. Brightly colored illustrations and colorful fonts bring the story to life. The imaginative story will appeal to young readers. The large font, comic style writing, and fast paced story make this a great book for reluctant readers.

My son really enjoyed this book and laughed at the ending. He definitely wanted to keep the book so he could read it again.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
