Taro and the Terror of Eats Street

Gr 1—3—Taro and his magical pencil are back in a high-speed adventure in Doodledum, where King Crossout is terrorizing the inhabitants of Eats Street, a miles-long strip of delectable restaurants. Taro has to save the street from the wicked king and his dangerous super fish, the Coelacanth, using only his magical pencil. With gross-out humor and bonus interactive games inside, this book is sure to be on many boys' wish lists. The exaggerated cartoon art is done in pen-and-ink with a few pages in color. This offering just might inspire some children to use their own "magic pencils" to create some imaginative characters.—Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
