Super Sporty 3: The Mechanical Menaces by Ellie Firestone

On My Kindle BR's review of Super Sporty 3: The Mechanical Menaces by Ellie Firestone

Sporty and Harley are back, and saving the world from the evil duo, Blarg and Splatt!

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Sporty and Harley find themselves in some serious danger when an evil plan concocted by Blarg and Splatt is revealed to them. Blarg and Splatt, with their evil robots, are traveling back in time to take away baby Sporty's super powers. If Blarg's and Splatt's evil scheme is successful, Sporty will not be able to help Harley discover her super powers; which will prevent the dynamic duo from saving the world in the future.

Sporty and Harley have no choice; they must travel back in time with their friends, Icky and Troy, to protect baby Sporty from this dastardly scheme. Will Sporty and Harley be able to save baby Sporty's powers, or will Blarg's and Splatt's plot to conquer the Earth succeed?

Super Sporty 3: The Mechanical Menaces by Ellie Firestone is a fun and imaginative story. Ellie's book has an excellent balance of humor and suspense, along with just enough descriptive details to keep a younger audience engaged.

While Super Sporty 3 is a chapter book, the illustrations that Ellie created for the book are colorful, eye-catching, and relevant to the subject matters presented in the book. Super Sporty might not be good to give to a child to read on its own until the fourth grade, because there are some words in the book that a younger child will struggle with. However, I really wish that the Super Sporty series had been written when my nieces and nephew were 8 years old; I would have loved reading the series with them, and it would have given me the opportunity to help build their vocabulary and reading comprehension skills by relying on context clues rather than memorization.

If I could travel back in time to when my nieces and nephew were younger, I would definitely take Super Sporty 3: The Mechanical Menaces with me to read with them. If the Super Sporty series isn't in your child's bookshelf, it should be!
