    One thought on “Wedgieman: A Hero Is Born”

    1. Never mind that Bob Shea is a favorite illustrator of mine Wedgieman is great writing for the Early Reader set. Lots of good humor - like Wedgieman actually starts as Veggie Man but due to a V shaped stick stuck on his outfit the kids see W - and hence he becomes Wedgieman. Not to worry lots of veggies accompany the inevitable wedgie. Definitely high interest.

    2. Wedgieman: A Hero is Born is a level 3 easy reader from Random House’s Step into Reading series. (In this series, Level 3 is for readers who can read independently, and the back of the book promises engaging characters, easy-to-follow plots, and popular topics.) Though the title suggests comparisons to the Captain Underpants series, I am happy to report that Wedgieman is somewhat less gross than the famed chapter book hero. In fact, Wedgieman starts out as Veggiebaby, then Veggieboy, and final [...]

    3. I love the things Charise Mericle Harper and Bob Shea have done. So I was excited to read this particular easy reader. Basically Veggie Man is a kid who loves vegetables. And he has super powers. He had to practice his superpowers in order to actually be good with them, but he worked and became Veggie Man…a superhero who wanted to help others love vegetables too. When a kid was stuck in the top of a tree, he flew up to save the day. Then he gave the kid a bunch of carrots. However, while he wa [...]

    4. A funny book with nice illustrations, suitable for children age 6 - 8 years old who are reading on their own.One day a superhero was born. His name is Veggiebaby. He loves vegetables. All those vegetables made Veggiebaby very healthy, so he grew fast and one day he turned into Veggieboy.Veggieboy practices his superhero skills. It was not easy but he keeps trying until he succeed. After a while, he turned into Veggieman. He is a grown-up now so he uses his superhero skill to help other people. O [...]

    5. A humorous early reader, that's actually slightly funny in places, and so are the illustrations. Note that I may be rating it higher because I can't help but compare with Tales for Very Picky Eaters, which we found somewhat lame

    6. Veggieboy practices flying, lifting, and helping people to hone his superhero skills, and finally Veggieman's training as a superhero is complete, but he is surprised when children want to change his name.So excited for this new early reader series that will be perfect for boys!

    7. A disappointing beginning to an early reader series which is likely to appeal to the Captain Underpants set. Unfocused, confusing plot. The idea has potential so I will read others in the series with interest.

    8. You had me at "Wedgieman."Seriously, though, I feel like this is a good one to recommend to kids who are about to branch into Captain Underpants but aren't there yet (or who need a Captain Underpants read alike!)

    9. This is a thoroughly enjoyable book to read aloud with my 3 year old. His laughs make it even more fun, and the reread factor only gets tiresome when he wants to reread the book more than 3 times in one sitting. He could be stalling his bedtimeor he really just enjoys this book.

    10. This was a silly book that you wonder why it was named Wedgieman. I am glad you don't find out until you are almost done with the book.
