Super Schnoz
review 1: Eleven-year-old Andy Whiffler must contend with bullies who make fun of his extraordinarily large nose when he moves to a new school. While the nose may be large, it also has an exceptionally strong sense of smell and other attributes that turn Andy, nicknamed Super Schnnoz, into a superhero who helps save his school and town from an unethical company. Once enemies, now allies, TJ, Jimmy, Mumps, and Andy, together with talented graphic artist Vivian, prove that our worst enemies can become our best friends. Having a boy with a snout that enables him to fly and shoot out cayenne pepper as a weapon is not a story I would have ever imagined, but it works quite well here. I chortled at several of the illustrations showing Andy's amazing nose. The book contains several nose- or... more smell-related puns and jokes. Fans of passages mentioning snot and boogers will find this one highly appealing.
review 2: Andy Whiffler has always stood out in a crowd. He has often been teased and ridiculed by his peers. All because he was born with a gigantic nose. Andy doesn't really mind, because thanks to his gigantic nose he has a fabulous sense of smell. He collects smells of all kinds, even those disgusting ones that no one else wants to be around. When his school, appropriately named James F. Durante Elementary School, is shut-down due to some kind of toxic spill, Andy and his friends form a super-team to find out what is really going on. Andy embraces his enormous honker and discovers it has the ability to make him fly. Now known as Super Schnoz, he goes where no other kid can go to get to the bottom of the icky smell. Oh yeah, he might do a little sneezing to battle the evil group of fiends that is trying to take over the world one polluted city at a time! less

It had a Captain Underpants appeal. I think the elementary boys would really like it.
Short chapters and subject matter perfect for reluctant readers, especially boys.
Really silly story for elementary kids that like to talk about boogers.
Totally silly and very funny to the target audience.
