Genre: Middle-Grade Action-Adventure, Humor, and Light Horror

Book Blurb:

My Review:

It’s the ultimate battle in this children’s book full of adventure. There’s an evil scientist with a great villain name (Dr. Cooties) and our group of brave kids out to save the world (Germaphobes).

Talk about a book written for kids. This book features all the elements which combine to make a story kids want to read. Colorful characters with fun names. An easy plot to understand. Relatable characters who act like kids. Imaginative action scenes. This book encompasses all these traits and more.

The writing is peppered with punchy dialogue and uses kid-friendly language. The author has some serious writing chops and it comes across while reading.

I thorough enjoyed reading this book. Any kid would love to read this one. It would make for a great streaming show.

My Rating: 5 stars
