Read in February, 2010

This book desperately wants to be Captain Underpants. The problem is it not only lacks the bathroom humour of its inspiration, it is too self-aware. This leads to heavy handed references to letting some badguys get away because they need villains for the next book. It's as if the author thinks being meta involves only a large wink at the audience.
