MR. PARTICULAR: The World’s Choosiest Champion
by Jason Kirschner (Sterling Books, 2016)
“Told in comic-book format with large, kinetic panels and a pleasantly muted palette, Kirschner’s offering … shows even the most stickling superhero can muster the inner strength to do what must be done to save the day. A particularly appropriate tale just right for a choosy crowd.”—Kirkus Reviews
“A superhero faces his worst fears in this exuberant picture book… Mr. Particular is a top-notch superhero whose only weakness is his fussiness… The pencil and digital cartoon illustrations are a nice fit for this graphic novel-style picture book. VERDICT: A general purchase for most collections, especially those with very exacting superheroes.”—School Library Journal
“I enjoyed Mr. Particular and so will you. This is a great book for kids—a terrific story, beautifully illustrated.”—David Letterman
