Aimed At New Readers - Game Over, Super Rabbit Boy! A Branches Book (Press Start! #1)

Game Over, Super Rabbit Boy! A Branches Book by Thomas Flintham

Pick a book. Grow a Reader! Finding the perfect book for the new or reluctant reader is very important. I know because even though my kids are 11 and 13 if it isn't a book they are interested in getting them to read is torture. 

This series is part of Scholastic's early chapter book line, Branches, aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

Uh-oh, Animal Town is in trouble! Meanie King Viking has created a dreaded robot army to spread No Fun across the land. On top of that, he has stolen the happiest and most fun animal ever, Singing Dog. There is only one person who can save the day -- Super Rabbit Boy! Super Rabbit Boy is super fast and super brave, but he's also a video game character living in a video game world. What will happen when Sunny, the boy playing the game, loses each level? Will it be game over for Super Rabbit Boy and all his friends?

With full-color art by Thomas Flintham!

The 411:  

This book is perfect for new readers or reluctant readers because it pairs a fun story line with reader friendly pages filled with fun pictures and a kids natural love of video games. This is exactly they book I purchase to get my son to read. He loves gaming and if the book is written so it reads or looks  like a game with tons of game like references, he is all in!

In this book the reader is the gamer who is playing a game called Animal Town it consists of heroes and villains. Our Villain is a mean old man who doesn't like to have fun named Meanie King Viking. Our hero is Super Rabbit Boy. Rabbit Boy only needs to eat carrots for his super powers to kick  in. Like most games our hero has indispensable lives and if they are used up the Game Is Over. In this story our hero has to rescue Singing Dog from the Meanie King Viking without using up all his lives. Can he do it? know he can.

The perfect book for kids whose eyes are on their electronic devices way more than they are reading.
