Review — Ooze Slingers from Outer Space

Eek and Ack, twins from the Great Goo Galaxy, are out to conquer Earth. After their annoying sister tattles on them for trying to blow it up, their dad instructs them to find a more peaceful means for taking over the planet. Eek comes up with a foolproof plan, and the twins begin to collect snottle bugs, which are to be used to cover Earth in green ooze, but that idea gets them into a huge mess. The art takes full advantage of the silly situation when the boys’ creations come to life. In the second book, Jimmy Sniffles and his superpowered nose return to fight the evil Dr. Von Snotenstein. This time, however, Jimmy has a cold, and his medicine has zapped his sense of smell. This leaves the perfect opening for the evil doctor to take over the city with his awful Snot-Bots. Luckily, Jimmy comes up with a way to thwart him, and the villain is defeated-for now. The cartoons are bold and captivating, and the gross humor will surely bring in even the most reluctant of readers.
