Shredderman: Attack of the Tagger by Wendelin Van Draanen, illus. by Brian Biggs, continues the adventures of Nolan Byrd (aka Shredderman) begun with Secret Identity, which PW called " `Revenge of the Nerds' for the elementary crowd." When someone vandalizes Nolan's favorite teacher's van, it's up to Shredderman and his digital camera to unmask the villain. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Gr 3-6-Nolan's life has not been the same since he invented Shredderman. Sure, he's still called "nerd," and he avoids running into bully Bubba Bixby, but now he's secretly a cyber-hero. As such, Nolan knows he's the man for the job when graffiti is spray-painted around Cedar Valley and the culprit cannot be caught. However, things do not go as planned as Shredderman is accused of being the tagger, and he is under the clock to see that truth and justice prevail before his true identity comes to light. Van Draanen delivers an entertaining sequel to Secret Identity (Knopf, 2004), packed with plenty of action and humor to keep kids, especially reluctant readers, turning the pages and rooting for Nolan. As in the first book, Biggs's black-and-white illustrations capture the humor and action of the straightforward plot.-Christine McGinty, Albany Public Library, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
