Meet Mr. Particular—the world’s choosiest champion! This superhero’s super picky: he says NO to squishy mud, gross green things, tucked-in shirts, humming, and anything with coconut. But, when his friends in the “Super-Duper Group” finally get fed up with his fussiness, can Mr. Particular prove that even the super-squeamish can save the day? This fun comic-book-style story will delight even the most finicky kids!

“I enjoyed Mr. Particular and so will you. This is a great book for kids—a terrific story, beautifully illustrated.” —David Letterman

About the Author:

Jason Kirschner started wearing a red towel as a cape right around the time he started walking and was the particularly particular leader of many super-duper groups in his time. By day, Jason is a set designer for television, with credits that include The Meredith Vieira Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and an amazing fourteen-year stint at The Late Show with David Letterman. By night, Jason is an author and illustrator of children’s books. He lives in Montclair, New Jersey, with his finicky veterinarian wife, persnickety twins, and ridiculously choosy cat. This is his first picture book. Find more of his work at jasonkirschner.com.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2—A superhero faces his worst fears in this exuberant picture book. Mr. Particular is a top-notch superhero whose only weakness is his fussiness ("Mr. Particular liked things the way he liked them—and only the way he liked them."). He hates humming, tucked-in shirts, and anything green, to name a few offenses. These quirks lead to a lot of frustration with his other friends in the Super-Duper Group because they often prevent him from saving the universe from bad guys. Eventually his colleagues have had enough of his finickiness, and they inform him that he is being kicked off the team. Mr. Particular tries to fix his weakness but just can't face any of his fears. Luckily, everything changes when a friend gets in trouble and needs Mr. Particular to save the day. The pencil and digital cartoon illustrations are a nice fit for this graphic novel-style picture book. VERDICT A general purchase for most collections, especially those with very exacting superheroes.—Brooke Newberry, La Crosse Public Library, WI
