Melvin Beederman the Revenge of the McNasty Brothers has very funny pictures. For example in one picture Melvin and Candace are catching the McNasty Brothers’ van. It shows Candace and Melvin stopping the van dead in its tracks and the road is being torn up. The McNasty Brothers are yelling like they want to get out of there quickly. The pictures give a lot of details. My favorite part is when all the bullies at Candace’s school dogpile on her but Candace uses her super powers to throw them off her. She throws them into the bathroom stalls. My favorite character is Melvin. I like him because he is persistent. For example Melvin can’t get up in the air on his first try, but he doesn’t give up. He tries four times and always gets up on the fifth try. “Crash, splat, thud, and kabonk.” Then he is able to join Candace in the air. These are some reasons why I like the Melvin Beederman series.
I would recommend this book to 3rd to 5th graders who like funny superhero books. Also, if you like books about teamwork, you should read Melvin Beederman Revenge of the McNasty Brothers.
