Giving voice to characters as diverse as a New York cab driver, a notorious bully, an eccentric teacher, and a potato-chip-loving hero is no mean feat. Matt Labyorteaux performs each with verve and gusto. As Leon starts his fifth-grade year, he continues his efforts to outmatch Henry Lumpkin, utilizes potato chips in science class, and dazzles attendees of a potato chip convention. A zany Kurzweil cast of characters supports each move. Who knew there was so much potato chip trivia to master and that sometimes masterful teaching takes students way out of the box? Labyorteaux's distinctive characters and fast pace help deliver a story full of spunk and laugh-out-loud moments. A.R.
