Melvin to the Reading Rescue......

Los Angeles superhero Melvin Beederman and Candace, his partner in "uncrime," find themselves on an adventure involving liquid bologna and country music after Melvin receives some mysterious, threatening e-mails.

Horn Book (Fall 2007)
The clumsy crusader is back to protect LA from dastardly evildoers. Aside from a new bad guy, this fourth book is much of the same: Melvin watches TV with his pet rat, Melvin can't fly until the fifth try, Melvin saves the day. Silly details help the plot rise above mere formula. Energetic comic-book-style sketches accompany the text.
