Kindergarten-Grade 2—This whimsical tale of an everyday hero has a rhyming text and lively illustrations. Grandpappy has superpowers when he "snippy snappies" his suspenders. He can work his magic to make breakfast or clean the house, or for bigger stuff. He can get the cows unstuck from the muck ("Boing-a-moing-a-moooo") and give a snap to get the mail train back on the track ("Boing-a-choing-a-chooooo"). Alas, his suspenders lose their elasticity just as Grandmammy needs to be rescued from some ambitious crows lifting her into the air. Despite his droopy suspenders, Grandpappy leaps to the rescue and promptly loses his trousers. "Smoochy-smacky-smoooooooooooooooo," his lightning-bolt-patterned bloomers have the same effect as his suspenders, and his lovely wife is saved. Plourde's text, which uses different fonts, sizes, and placements, works well once readers get the right cadence. Santoro's digital mixed-media illustrations animate the tale in a wonderful way. Together the cartoon and realistic elements add depth, detail, and humor to the tale.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
