More About This Title Alien Dude! Mr. Evil Potato Man and the Food Fight
When the villain Mr. Evil Potato Man puts a spell on the school food, students start turning into food and a huge food fight erupts. Alien Dude morphs into a peeler and peels, then fries the giant potato. Once the fries are eaten, the spell is broken. This is the second title in an early-reader adventure series for reluctant boy (and girl) readers, featuring chapters and multiple plots alongside hilarious cartoon illustrations and gross-out humor. Teachers will appreciate the simple sentences and repeating phrases necessary for beginning readers, making the book ideal for the classroom. Boys reading below grade level who require boy-friendly, age-appropriate content will avoid the embarrassment of reading "baby" books and, at the same time, read with success.
