Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alvin Bixby: Hulking, knuckles of steel, hideous breath, foul temper. Kids call him: Bubba.

Nolan Byrd: Puny, power walker, math genius, can't keep shoes tied. Kids call him: Nerd.

Bubba has been the bane of Nolan's existence for five long years. So when Mr. Green asks the class to become reporters, Nolan decides he'll write an expose — on Bubba. He doesn't want to sign his name to it (that'd be suicidal), so Nolan creates a secret identity for himself — on the Internet. He launches Shredderman.com as a place where truth and justice prevail — and bullies get what's coming to them.

This hilariously triumphant story is for any kid who's ever dreamed of unleashing their own inner superhero!

Review:

"[A] hilarious new series....'Wa-hoo!' for Shredderman, and kudos to Van Draanen for delivering a character-driven series that's spot-on for middle-graders and great for reluctant readers, especially boys." Jennifer Mattson, Booklist (Starred Review)

Review:

"[Q]uick-moving, often comical....The reactions of his teacher and classmates will be as gratifying to readers as they are to Nolan....Kids are likely to log on to subsequent tales." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Nolan's narration has a wistful reality that makes him believable and sympathetic....Characterizations are solid, if not overly complex, right down to aware parents and concerned teachers." Janice M. Del Negro, Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Review:

"[T]he author adds a supporting cast of unconventional characters, and pushes off a rolling tangle of subplots to set the stage for further exploits from Shredderman. They should get an enthusiastic welcome." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Readers will be impressed with the protagonist's ingenious problem-solving abilities....This entertaining story...will keep even reluctant readers laughing and wanting more stories about this cyber superhero." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Creating a secret identity for himself when he writes an expos of a bully for the school newspaper, Nolan Byrd launches Shredderman.com, a place where truth and justice prevail — and bullies get what's coming to them. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Fifth-grader Nolan Byrd, tired of being called names by the class bully, has a secret identity — Shredderman!
