The Fortress of Kaspar Snit by Cary Fagan

This is the first book of Fagan's that I have read. He does a very good job of writing about subject matter that will appeal to young readers. It's a bit silly, and some of it is pretty fantastic - and that's what will make it so attractive for the reader.

Seven year old Solly dresses as a superhero known as Googoo-man, his sister wants to learn to fly and someone is stealing all the great fountains of the world. It's up to Googoo-man's family to stop this evil person!

This would be a fun read for young ones. Reading it aloud would give the reader lots of options for voice changes and for acting out the scenes it as it goes along.

Tundra Books graciously gave me this copy for review and I've already got a young one in mind for my copy. Pick yourself up a copy and share some fun and laughter with an intermediate reader.
