THE INTRUDER

Superhero Melvin Beederman lived in a tree house overlooking Los Angeles, California. When he wasn’t catching bad guys or rescuing good guys, he was home in his tree, watching cartoons.

And eating pretzels.

And drinking root beer.

And doing math problems during commercials.

This is what superheroes do when they’re not working. The only thing that changes is the snack … and the math. Why was Melvin taking it so easy? Because the McNasty Brothers, those notorious bank robbers and all-around bad guys, were back in prison where they belonged. There were other bad guys who needed catching, of course. But they were not nearly as nasty as the McNasty Brothers.

They didn’t smell as bad either.

So Melvin was taking a break and watching his favorite show, The Adventures of Thunderman. Like most superheroes, Thunderman had an assistant. Her name was Thunder Thighs. Melvin Beederman also had an assistant—Candace Brinkwater. The only person ever to run the hundred-yard dash in three and a half seconds. The only person ever to score 500 points in a basketball game. The only third-grader who could fly.

This flying stuff came in pretty handy for a superhero.

When The Adventures of Thunderman was over, Melvin typed an e-mail to his assistant.

Dear Candace,

Meet me at the library after school.

We’ll do a little math, then catch some bad guys.

Sincerely,

Your partner in uncrime,

Melvin

This was their agreement: Melvin helped Candace with math, and she helped him save the world. Candace’s parents loved having a daughter who saved the world on a regular basis—just as long as she was home for dinner.

Melvin pressed SEND on his computer. Suddenly, he heard something.

Squeak squeak.

Melvin jumped to his feet. He wasn’t alone. Who’s there?

Squeak squeak.

The squeaking was coming from behind the TV.

Melvin got ready to fight. Whoever you are, come out with your hands up.

Wait a minute. That was policeman talk. And Melvin was a superhero,

  • (4/5)
    The Revenge of the McNasty Brothers is the second book in the Melvin Beederman: Superhero series, which is shaping up to be a romping good series! In this installment, Melvin is settling into his tree house…he even discovers that he’s got an interesting new roommate who enjoys some of his very favorite things (namely pretzels and a certain TV show) and he’s developing a more in depth relationship with his sidekick (Candice Brinkwater). We find that there are MORE McNasty’s, the brothers (Filthy and Grunge) have two equally nasty sisters (Mudball and Puke) who help them escape from prison…from there they make the inevitable decision to kidnap Candice and it’s up to Melvin to save her from a rather devious bologna inspired trap! Will he be able to do it? You simply must read to find out!Overall, The Revenge of the McNasty Brothers is every bit as amusing, entertaining as The Curse of the Bologna Sandwich! This series is sure to be a favorite among boys (6-10), but I also found that my 9 year old daughter loves this series and can hardly wait until she can read the next book in the series, so it will appeal to a mixed audience. It would also be a wonderful read aloud for younger kids (especially if you can pull off the narrator effect)! Trine manages to touch on important topics like doing homework before having fun (and fighting crime), he loves math (what self-respecting superhero wouldn’t?), self-esteem, persevering through difficulty, bullying, creative problem solving, the importance of the perfect evil laugh (if you’re an evil villain) and more…all the while making it hilariously funny! This is a great beginning reader book, for those making the transition to chapter books and the illustrations help to bring the story to life for readers still struggling to make the transition to books without pictures. I give it 4 stars and two thumbs up, we all loved it!
