Full Text Reviews:

Bulletin for the Center... - 09/02/2012 “Jo Schmo came from a long line of crime fighters. She knew that one day she too would wear a badge.” That day comes sooner than fourth-grader Jo expects when she receives a cape and a Superhero Instruction Manual from her retiring superhero uncle. With the encouragement of her grandpa Joe, a retired sheriff, and the help of her dog, Raymond, Jo begins taking down bad guys, starting in Dinos Are Forever with a pair of bumbling bank robbers and Dr. Dastardly, a mad genius bent on taking over the world. Dr. Dastardly uses his Re-animator Laminator gun to unleash reanimated dinosaur skeletons on San Francisco, but neither dinosaurs nor doctor are a match for Jo’s “Knuckle Sandwich” and Raymond’s excessive drool. In Wyatt Burp Rides Again, Jo and Raymond travel back in time to capture Wyatt Burp, the infamous villain of the Old West who can bring down a bank vault door with one sarsaparilla-fueled burp. Although the frequent digressions for a humorous aside sometimes cause the pacing of both books to lose steam, the meandering is generally amusing enough to be worth it. Raymond is particularly hilarious as he makes numerous funny but silent “comments”: “Raymond gave the package the once-over with his nose, then looked at Jo in a way that said, ‘I detect snacks. Open it at once.’” Plentiful monochromatic illustrations, some in comic-strip-style panels, feature blocky figures in dynamic poses and possess a childlike sensibility. There’s plenty of goofy middle-grade appeal here for both boys and girls; hand this to kids suffering from Phineas and Ferb withdrawal now that school is back in session.
