School Library Journal - 11/01/2021 Gr 4–7—Logan County, VA, is a place where "anything can happen," and what's happening right now is a storm of Tooth Frogs. Cousins Otto and Sheed, the Legendary Alston Boys, fight off the Tooth Frogs with their grandma, but more alarming visitors arrive: Otto's mom and Sheed's dad. Since returning from a trip to Warped World, Sheed has been "radiating weirdness" and acting as a beacon for more weirdness, including a new company called GOO, Inc. that is buying up all the "weirderfront property" in Logan County. The Legendary Alston Boys team up with the Epic Ellison Girls, Leen and Wiki, to protect their town; stakes are especially high for Otto and Sheed, who worry their parents will split them up. With Otto's compulsive note-taking and deductions, Leen's tech gadgets, Wiki's photographic memory, and Sheen's uncanny power—as well as their strong bonds with each other—the boys and girls make a formidable team. Giles provides sufficient background for readers new to the series, but his hints at past adventures will likely inspire new fans to go back to previous titles. All main characters are Black. VERDICT A humorous, fast-paced, surreal fantasy adventure story featuring resourceful kids working together to defeat evil; perfect for fans of Carlos Hernandez's Sal & Gabi Break the Universe. Highly recommended.—Jenny Arch, Lilly Lib., Florence, MA - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
