Alex and Ian, The Bug Boys, became my little brother’s idolized superheroes after he lost his hope on Spider-Man, when he vanished in Infinity War. The plot, the characters, and the funny jokes get to be more exciting. The Bug Boys did not just mature, the growing of hairs or such, but also they became stronger to fight the super villain, Professor Blake Blackhart.
I really love the brilliant and creative humor of the author, Stewart Hoffman, that made me laugh, the mekmek and the fart farts.

If you enjoy a good laugh and a great superhero story, then I recommend that you read this book (and the first book in the series). While we got to know Ian and Alex in the first book where they gain their superpowers, this book further endears our two heroes to readers by exploring their life after their first major battle. And the story only gets better!

The author weaves the woes of puberty, beginning to like girls, and building friendships with exploring and hiding superpowers in small town R

Once it was given the copy of the sequel of The Bug Boys, it was a must for me. Even though the lack of time almost won I had to put up with the ability of flying as a bug to finish reading the book. I have to say I enjoyed the first but this is way better: lots of adventures and humor, new great characters, and of course, more bugs.
I felt completely hooked since the beginning and the fact that the author makes you explore puberty and face life changes in a different peculiar way, made me wish

If you like the first, this one is a must. Like all origin stories, the first book has the difficult job of explaining everything. Now that is out of the way we can get on and have a full on, wacky, good guys versus bad guys adventure. Funny, quirky and full of even more animals and insects (and even a girl), this is non stop quirky action.

I also got this book as a free-for-review book from Stewart. Does he accomplish the task of entertaining me with a sequel?! You should know that already because of the stars I gave the book. :P

There was something missing from the last book. It was an interesting problem and a question I wondered about a lot. This book answers the question of "What happened to the other apple??" quite nicely. The boys are going through some life changes which will affect their lives as they continue to adjust to

I don't think I can adequately express how much I genuinely enjoy these books. I was so excited when I heard there would be a sequel to the original Bug Boys book, and I was even more excited after I read it. The plot is entertaining, the writing is clever and SO funny, the villain is truly formidable, and the boys are impressively resourceful in vanquishing their foe.

One thing that bugs me (pun intended) about many popular books is how young people are able to do things so drastically outside t

I loved the first Bug Boys book, but this was even more fun! I loved the humor (particularly the side jokes in the end notes), the further development of characters from the first book, and the addition of new characters! The pacing was also excellent. Another improvement of this book from the last book is that the boys were more challenged this time - they were forced to consider resources and strategies, and it really helped contribute to character growth. Overall a great, quick read and I hop ...more

so far one of the best book I have read, the characters, the place, and the imagination it was another level. loved it. it was brilliantly done and the humor by the author made me laugh. I personally think kids would love this book. Ian and Alex, great boys and their adventure and the conversations were awesome. the superheroes role, I loved every character. I really can't express how genuinely I love this book.

PS- get a book and enjoy the laugh

Thank you to @kidlitexchange for providing the free copy of The Bug Boys vs. Professor Blake Blackhart by @shoffman3572 in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

In this second installment from author Stewart Hoffman, The Bug Boys vs. Professor Blake Blackhart continues the adventure of Alex and Ian, two boys who gain special abilities of every bug they ingest. This time around, they face Blake Blackhart, a disgraced Oxford professor who has discovered the boys’ secret and is usi

Hoffman's imagination and sense of humor continue to amaze me. Once again, he wrote a novel that succeeds on all levels. While primarily aimed at boys and girls of middle-school age, this book is thoroughly entertaining to adults as well (at least, it was to me, and I'm a pretty discriminating old geezer).

Born in the UK but now living in California, he pays his bills by being a web developer. Fast approaching fifty-years-old, he has only recently discovered Falafel, during
