Barry Gott is an illustrator of books and greeting cards.
Gr 2-4-Horace, who measures 30 inches tall, is the shortest 10-year-old in the town of Blootinville. When his taller, smarter, younger sister makes him eat her experimental cupcakes and wear a purple costume, he becomes a superhero. After flying around town and visiting friends, he decides to go after the man-eating giant guinea pig that has been cruising the school playground. Humorous illustrations add to the lighthearted tone of the story. This fantasy chapter book is reminiscent of Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" series (Scholastic), and reluctant readers will love the quick pace and silly characters.
