Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's a bird, It's a plane — no, It's Johnny Hangtime!

Jumping off the Empire State Building, fighting on the wing of a biplane, and parachuting onto the back of a horse are all in a day's work for 13-year-old Johnny Thyme, a stunt kid known in the movie business as Johnny Hangtime. But Johnny's phenomenal feats are a movie industry secret. Ricky Corvette, the superstar teen for whom Johnny doubles, wants his fans to think he does his own stunts. Johnny's devoted to repeating the career of his legendary stuntman father, but what's he going to do when his favorite director asks him to perform the super-dangerous stunt that killed his father? Will following in his daredevil; dad's footsteps take him over the edge?

Review:

"[T]he author sets the scene for a sappy Hollywood ending, and a kid-pleasing wrap." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[L]augh-out-loud...the action will appeal to readers wanting high-interest, low-reading-level material." School Library Journal
