The Adventures of Daniel Boom aka Loud Boy series features story lines that are bursting with superheroes, belly laughs, and action packed adventure AND is critically acclaimed by numerous education and library trade publications (but don’t tell kids that!). Author D.J. Steinberg’s writing is smart and funny with puns a-plenty and the kid-friendly graphic novel format is ideal for middle graders and reluctant readers
Daniel Boom has a really LOUD voice. But the real truth is that he is a superhero. Daniel becomes LOUD BOY. At school and home, Daniel’s loud voice only gets him in trouble. But as a superhero, it’s Daniel’s loud voice that saves the day! He makes a group of friends at school, each of whom have a “special talent”. His friends become Chatterbox, Destructo-Kid, Tantrum Girl, and Fidget and find special missions to save the world from evil.
A terrific series for every child who loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid and then asks, “what should I read next?,” Daniel Boom and his friends channel their tendencies to throw tantrums, talk too much and too loud, fidget and cause chaos wherever they go into superpowers that help save the world. What nine
old wouldn’t delight in a story that makes the very behavior they get disciplined for (Sit down! Stop talking! Be quiet!) the key to foiling evil plots for global domination???
I received the newest book in the series, Loud boy #4: Grow up! My 10-year-old loves The Whimpy Kids series plus he likes comic book style of books, so I knew he would like it. And was I was right, he read it in one sitting. He said “I like it. It was a smart choice to put it in comic form. It was funny, my mom is going to have to get the first 3 for me to read!” I also read with my 6-year-old. He enjoyed it as well.
