Viper Girl Kicks Canadian Robottom by Tony Saylor
Viper Girl’s been working too hard as a superhero. She's feeling the stress and she needs a vacation. What's the best place on earth for a peaceful, nerve-calming vacation? That’s right: Canada! Of course, this is Viper Girl we’re talking about, so it won’t exactly be a your run-of-the-mill, get-away-from-it-all escape. Even across the border, Viper Girl is going to have to kick evil’s ugly butt!
Viper Girl is slowly becoming one of my favorite children's books. It has a female main character, which girls like. It also has a lot of kick butt action that boys can appreciate. The adults might even be able to enjoy it, due to several geeky references in it. The Viper Girl series has something in it for everyone.
I think the third installment, Viper Girl Kicks Canadian Robottom was my favorite so far. The author has a great sense of humor. Most of the pages made me chuckle. I also like the subtle things that he added, such as the words on the Canadian flag, and the cover of the Dragon-Bot Operations manual.
The illustrations in Viper Girl Kicks Canadian Robottom are wonderfully done. I like that the author decided to keep the illustrations in color. It adds so much to the story and makes it more visually appealing. My favorite one was the illustration of Viper Girl eating the frosted coconut shavings on the way to Canada. I'm curious to know where she found a warm beach in Canada.
Viper Girl Kicks Canadian Robottom was a great book. It was a little over the top silly at times, but that's one of the reasons why I liked it. I recommend it for boys and girls, four and older. If the children can't read it by themselves, the parents can have fun reading it to them.
I give Viper Girl Kicks Canadian Robottom: 5/5.
