How I Got This Book: ARC from Capstone through Shelf Awareness
My Rating: 3/5
"With his incredible powers, Mr. Puzzle can stretch, bend, shrink, grow, and will work hard to keep the folks of Busyville safe from trouble. What a nice guy! Mr. Puzzle, a superhero who's a perfect fit for all problems."
Mr. Puzzle is a likeable, good hearted superhero who is admired by all. He encounters many crazy villains, but none can match wits with Mr. Puzzle!
This book is great for young, reluctant readers, particularly boys. The drawings are eye catching, but not too distracting. While the plot lines are not exactly deep and thought provoking, they are entertaining. I liked that a few good messages were worked in, such as the importance of education.
Overall, a good book to recommend to kids between the ages of 6 and 10 who have trouble getting into a longer story.
