KIRKUS REVIEW

Doughty young Sardine and her cohorts continue to vanquish hilariously dopey Supermuscleman, mad scientist Doc Krok and other villains in nine more or less independent new adventures that range from helping out a crowd of cartoon characters angrily protesting because they’re so lamely drawn (“Hey! You could at least draw me some pants!”) to rescuing acres of stolen French fries and herds of wild “Burgeegies” in the mouthwatering kingdom of Yummy. Presented in colorful, crowded cartoon panels and well-endowed with both self-referential comments (“Comics are cool but we only get 10 pages per story . . . A movie’s longer, so we’d have more time to kick Supermuscleman’s butt”) and characters with names like Emailia and Fetcher Bone, this expert mix of action, gross humor and clever side remarks will, despite the lack of a cohesive plot line, draw carloads of Captain Underpants graduates. (Graphic fantasy. 8-11)
