Zing, zong, zing. Brain flash! A pirate hook. Underground tunnels. Brains in jars. It’s time for an Escapade!
Clint McCool always has a lot of great ideas. That’s what makes him such a great hero. But sometimes he has too many great ideas. Armed with his super-powered cap, his brain flashes, and his two best friends, Clint is ready to solve any problem and find adventure anywhere. When he runs onto a film set, he gets into trouble. A lot of trouble. Can Clint McCool still save the day?
This easy-to-read, highly-illustrated book is a perfect first chapter book, printed in black and blue to help readers transition from full-color picture books to black-and-white chapter books. Exciting adventures, relatable characters, and engaging art—early readers will love joining Clint McCool for his Escapades.
“Filled with outrageous situations and graphiclike illustrations, this chapter book is fast-paced and fun… ideal for reluctant readers”–School Library Journal
“Relatable, likable Clint… could be a great role model for readers who struggle with focus, as he learns that sometimes it is better to be the boss of one idea at a time… This quirky, fast-paced series starter should easily get kids laughing”–Booklist

Big Thanks to Grosset & Dunlap for sending me a copy of Octo-Man and the Headless Monster #1 (The Escapades of Clint McCool) by Jane Kelley!!
AND as always, big thanks to you for popping by to see what I was rambling on about. LOL
Hope you have a great week.
Just a reminder, I usually post pics of the books I get right as I get them on to my facebook page and my instagram so make sure to click over and LIKE the page and/or follow my gram – then you’ll see what books I get as I get them instead of waiting till I do a “book haul” video. I’ll still do haul videos every couple of weeks, too. So… yeah. All righty then.
