In the third book in the series, Missy's class is putting on a play about George Washington Carver. Missy, of course, wants to be cast in the best, most exciting part. But Missy doesn't get a main part. She doesn't even get a speaking part. Missy does what she does best though--she turns her part into the most super duper royal deluxe part ever! This book features lively full-color illustrations throughout.

While I was not a fan of previous Missy books, I like this one. I think this plot is something that kids can relate to well. Most children want to be the star of the show and not have a non-speaking role as a peanut. I also like that the author has woven in some factual information about George Washington Carver (a person on our state's testing!) into this fictional story. Students will learn about him in spite of themselves!
These books are great transitional books for children who think they are to big for picture books (even though no one is ever to big for picture books!) but yet they are not quite ready to handle a hefty no picture chapter book. They don't look babyish either and the illustrations are in full color. This particular book uses a lot of speech bubbles so graphic novel/comic book loving kids will enjoy that as well.
My first grade daughter is an accelerated reader and this series of books is perfect for her. She tends to read the Super Duper Royal Deluxe books in about an hour. They really captivate her attention, have cute illustrations and are enjoyable for me for the times I read along with her. If your child is on the cusp of reading chapter books or already is reading chapter books but not the too sophisticated ones, give this series a try. I would probably just recommend this book for girls, but boys could potentially like it, too.
Fabulous illustrations combine with a funny story that is sure to pleasure both children and adults. There is something new to find in this book with each reading. Highly recommended for new readers and parents who are tired of the same-old-same-old.
