Description

Zing, zong, zing. Brain flash! A pirate hook. Underground tunnels. Brains in jars. It's time for an Escapade!

Clint McCool always has a lot of great ideas. That’s what makes him such a great hero. But sometimes he has too many great ideas. Armed with his super-powered cap, his brain flashes, and his two best friends, Clint is ready to solve any problem and find adventure anywhere. When he runs onto a film set, he gets into trouble. A lot of trouble. Can Clint McCool still save the day?

This easy-to-read, highly-illustrated book is a perfect first chapter book, printed in black and blue to help readers transition from full-color picture books to black-and-white chapter books. Exciting adventures, relatable characters, and engaging art—early readers will love joining Clint McCool for his Escapades.

"Filled with outrageous situations and graphiclike illustrations, this chapter book is fast-paced and fun... ideal for reluctant readers"--School Library Journal

"Relatable, likable Clint... could be a great role model for readers who struggle with focus, as he learns that sometimes it is better to be the boss of one idea at a time... This quirky, fast-paced series starter should easily get kids laughing"--Booklist
