About this title


In this second installment of the adventures of the Cupcaked Crusader, tiny ten-year-old Horace Splattly is pitted against his own sister, the girl genius behind his cupcake-induced superpowers. Second grader Melody Splattly is a devoted member of the Lily Deaver scout troop. She wears lavender Lily Deaver clothes, experiments with her Lily Deaver lab set, and cooks dinner every night in a Lily Deaver oven. Horace thinks she's crazy. But crazy enough to destroy every restaurant, food store, and snack shack in Blootinville, exploding gooey gravy bombs in the name of Lily Deaver? The Cupcaked Crusader must get to the sticky bottom of this mystery. And this time he has to bake his own cupcakes!

Packed with action, illustrations, and the sort of slightly weird humor that appeals to the playground crowd, this series will fly off the shelves with super-speed.

Illustrated by Barry Gott

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-Welcome to the continuation of the zany adventures of the Cupcaked Crusader. Horace is 10, but is nearly the shortest kid in school. His younger sister, Melody, creates disgusting-looking cupcakes, some covered with "spotted pebble things," others with white spikes or tiny caterpillars, etc. Eating any one of her concoctions provides him with a different super power, temporarily. The villain is Chef Nibbles, who hypnotizes the town's second graders and uses them in his effort to get everyone to eat his terrible canned food, Snoodles and Cheaze. Under his spell, Melody stops baking, so Horace tries his hand at it, with interesting results. The text provides plenty of creative twists, danger, and excitement to keep readers turning pages, and is enhanced by Gott's cartoon illustrations interspersed throughout. A likely choice to hand children who want more books like Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" series (Scholastic).
