Bad Dude, who we met in Wedgieman to the Rescue, is up to no good again. This time, he's using his evil Powerful Ordinary-Object Phaser (also known as POOP) to change the size of things. He's created giant bees and giant bunnies who wind up terrorizing him until Wedgieman saves the day and puts the giant phaser out of commission--but not before Wedgieman creates a Giant Carrot Wedgie for the neighborhood kids there are giant carrots for everyone!Beginning readers (and their caregivers) will howl with delight over the ka-pow! humor and blam! illustrations.
In The Adventures of Wedgieman: A Hero Is Born, young readers will follow Veggiebaby from his humble beginnings on his journey to becoming Veggieman. Um, make that Wedgieman, since that's what the kids in the neighborhood all call him. Let's face it--children aren't the best spellers and, well, wedgies are a lot cooler than veggies!But it's not all cauliflower and carrot sticks--Wedgieman has to fight some pretty bad dudes in his work as a superhero, yet the one battle he can't seem to win is the one over his superhero name. Brought vividly to life by Bob Shea's graphic and stylish illustrations, The Adventures of Wedgieman blends Charise Mericle Harper's outlandish humor with tongue-in-cheek action that will delight young readers.The Adventures of Wedgieman: A Hero Is Born is the first book in the series, and two more are on the way!
Following his debut in Wedgieman: A Hero Is Born, our superhero continues on his mission to get children to eat their vegetables. Until he meets Bad Dude and his secret inventions, that is. Bad Dude has a plan; it's a bad plan. He wants to use his Make-Things-Disappear Machine to zap the playground and make it dematerialize--and then force all the children to work in the Bad Dude Factory! But have no fear, Wedgieman comes to the rescue and saves the day--and develops a new wedgie in the process that's called The Celery!Beginning readers (and their caregivers) will howl with delight over the ka-pow! humor and blam! illustrations.
