"From the Trade Paperback edition.
Wendelin Van Draanen enjoys the three Rs: reading, running, and rock n roll. The author lives in central CA. Brian Biggs is an illustrator, designer, graphic novelist, and accordion player. He lives in Philadelphia, PA. From the Hardcover edition."
Gr 3-6-Nolan Byrd is Shredderman, a 12-year-old super cyber-hero whose secret identity is known only to his parents, his teacher, and himself. When his favorite TV star, Chase Morton, aka The Gecko, comes to town to shoot back-to-back episodes, Nolan gets the chance to meet him. The boys quickly bond over PlayStation, and Nolan soon becomes involved in helping Chase expose a sleazy paparazzo, The Mole, who uses the photos he takes to slander celebrities in the tabloids. Nolan uses his techno savvy to publicize The Mole's slimy antics, and ultimately bring him to justice. Read by Daniel Young, this third installment (Knopf, 2005) of Wendelin Van Draanen's popular series gets simple treatment in its translation to audiobook. Music and sound effects are at a minimum, used only during the introduction and at the end of each disc. Young's voice matches the age of the main character appropriately, though he tends to shout through the narration rather than use vocal nuance. Nevertheless, fans of Shredderman will enjoy tuning in to hear the exploits of everyone's favorite preteen Internet superhero.-Jennifer Verbrugge, Dakota County Library, Galaxie Branch, Apple Valley, MN Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
