Michael Hoffman, son of editor Jenny Hoffman, is in fourth grade. He loves to read and play soccer. He doesn’t know any superheroes — or sheep.
Do you know any kids who like to read? Have they ever read this book: Extraordinary Ernie & Marvelous Maud? If they haven’t, I suggest they read it!
Ernie is just a regular kid, until he runs into Amazing Desmond (from the local superhero office), who gives him the chance to become a super hero.
Maud is just a regular sheep, the middle sheep in her family, until Amazing Desmond tells her to come with him. When Ernie and Maud meet, Ernie is surprised to know that his sidekick is a sheep! A sheep was not what Ernie had in mind at all!
As they train to be superheroes, Ernie and Maud have exciting adventures! They patrol the area and rescue a girl from bullies.
This book is a fun book to read, and it has funny pictures. It is one of the funniest books I ever read!
You can read more about Ernie and Maud in two other books: The Middle Sheep and The Greatest Sheep in History. Ernie and Maud have incredible adventures in all three books, and they work as a team to stop evil.
Thanks for the great (and very well-written) review, Michael! I’ll certainly have to share this book with my children — they love to read, and they really love to laugh.
Awesome book review Michael! I will need to get these and add them to my collection.
I’m glad you enjoyed the book, Michael – I really liked your review!
Hi Michael. Thanks for the great review. I liked your writing, and I’m glad you liked my pictures. It’s one of the funniest books I’ve ever illustrated.
Hi Michael! Great report!
