Game Over, Super Rabbit Boy! (Paperback)
The When King Viking abducts the Singing Dog that delights the citizens of Animal Town, it’s up to Super Rabbit Boy to save the day by preserving fun, in a video game played by a boy. The boy controls Super Rabbit Boy against traps, enemies, and lava; and especially through Game Overs that frustrate the boy, who must persevere—the positive message about not giving up fits in well with all of the child-friendly content. The amount of text is great for young, emerging readers working on their text-endurance, and there are little Easter Eggs for adults reading with children in the vintage gaming motifs that will bring adults back to the video games of their own youths. It occupies a spot—age and content-wise—that isn’t always easy to shop for in chapter books, and is a fun addition to early readers’ shelves!— From Ann's Picks
