Wedgieman to the Rescue is a level 3 easy reader from Random House’s Step into Reading series. In his second adventure, Veggieman (aka Wedgieman) comes up against Bad Dude, a villain keen on zapping the playground and forcing all the kids to work in his factory. Not only does Wedgieman come through to save the kids, but the kids give Bad Dude a toilet-themed nickname of his own.

I like Veggieman as a character, and I think the tone and illustrations of this book are spot-on for the target age gro

And now the further adventures of our super hero du jour, “Wedgieman,” continues in Harper’s second hilarious installment “Wedgieman to the Rescue.” Harper employs a rather quirky writing style, very reminiscent of Dav Pilkey’s Captain Underpants series. In fact, my six-year-old son loved the pronunciation errors turned into jokes (i.e. “Wedgieman” for Veggieman and “Doodie” for Bad Dude) as well as the cool and stylish illustrations of the characters: Wedgieman, Larry “the Bad Dude,” and the ch ...more

Veggieman, known as Wedgieman to the kids in town, interrupts Bad Dude's evil plan to cause mayhem. Bad Dude wants to make playground equipment vanish with his Make-Things-Disappear machine so he can put the kids to work in the Bad Dude Factory! Wedgieman stops Bad Dude, gives everyone a healthy snack (celery), and, before taking Bad Dude to jail, gives himself a wedgie! Early readers will laugh out loud when they read this hilarious 2nd offering in Harper's 'Wedgieman' series.

This is a great kids book, perfect for younger readers. The Hero Wedgieman (Veggieman) thwarts the evil Bad Dude's plan to ruin the playground. Ends up giving the kids veggies and himself a Wedgie before putting Bad Dude in jail. The humor is spot on for the younger crowd and will encourage the young reader to keep on reading to see whats happening next.

This is just... stupid. Not even funny. Just stupid.

Overwhelming stupid. Do not recommend to any child. Probably trying to capitalize on the Captain Underpants success. This is just dumb and insulting to any kid's intelligence.

I have not read the first Wedgieman book - so maybe that is the reason I wasn't feeling it. 2 stars for story, 4 for Bob Shea's illustrations.

Easy readers that are snarky funny with gross-out kid humor.
