Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Sam turns into Bumblebee Boy to defeat pirates, fight dragons, and tame saber-tooth lions, he doesn't need his little brother, Owen, butting in and ruining his adventures. Bumblebee Boy flies alone! But what happens when Bumblebee Boy comes face-to-face with more scary aliens than even he can imagine? Owen is there, garbed in goggles and a towel cape, and he just might be the perfect alien-fighting sidekick.

For all young superhero fans with big imaginations and curious siblings, here's a hilarious and sweet new adventure from the creative team who knows exactly how kids think.

Review:

"Ladybug Girl's sidekick Bumblebee Boy gets a story of his own in this entry in Soman and Davis's series, an account of a playtime truce between Sam and his younger brother, Owen. The husband-and-wife team bounce between spreads of Sam as Bumblebee Boy immersed in superhero fantasies — fighting Greenbeard the Evil Pirate or the Fire Dragon — with real-life intrusions in the form of eager Owen. 'But I am soup hero too!' Owen cries as he tries to keep up with Sam, who isn't interested in sharing his games. Or is he? As in their previous titles, Soman and Davis demonstrate a sweet-tempered understanding of children's conflicting feelings: 'It was kind of fun when Owen helped catch the bank robbers, but Sam is still not sure if he is ready to play with anybody else.' The contrast between Sam's brawny superhero exploits and the humble domestic scenes from which they derive (the Giant Saber-Toothed Lion is the family kitty, the lunar surface a quilt) will charm readers, and so will the cute-as-a-button Owen in his blankie cape and aviator's hat with flaps. Ages 3 — 5. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Review:

"Soman's artwork is a delightful foray into the realm of make-believe, nicely balancing the props that Sam is using against what he imagines them to be. And Owen's interferences are delightfully tongue-in-cheek — the tot hangs on to the fierce Fire Dragon's tale and tames Giganto with a belly rub." Kirkus Reviews
