The Secret Life of Copernicus H. Stringfellow: Surreptitious Superhero by Lorin Barber

Copernicus H. Stringfellow, a.k.a. Nick, is not your run-of-the-mill genius. His mind is so powerful it can stop a speeding automobile or stem internal bleeding. As Nick goes about quietly doing good, he discovers that his powers are greatly enhanced by the nutrients present in Twinkies. Follow Nick on his amazing adventures in this humorous and exciting action-packed book for all ages.

What a fun story! Even though it's geared toward a younger audience, anyone can find enjoyment in the Secret Life of Copernicus Stringfellow! Nick thinks that twinkies are brainfood, and although I've not heard that before, he is certainly knowledgeable in most things.  

Nick just wants to help people and that's how he spends his life.  From one area to the next, he's helping people in his own way. There is alot of trivia in these pages that not only educated me, but really made Nick look super smart.  The secondary characters paled in comparison to him.  Some of their actions and responses weren't credible.  The writing is compelling and entertaining; the pages just raced by as I was immersed in Nick's adventure.  With some laugh out loud moments and a good moral - do good unto others, The Secret Life of Copernicus Stringfellow is a great read that I would recommend to anyone.  Although Barber's debut, I look forward to his next work!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
