Overview
A surprising and laugh-out-loud showdown between two pint-sized super-villains, perfect for young fans of Despicable Me.

Dylan's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Snivels, have always told him that he is the very best and cleverest super-villain in the whole wide world. And Dylan's confident that it's true--until he starts school and meets Addison Van Malice. Sure, Dylan's costume is scary. But Addison Van Malice's is bone-chilling. And yes, Dylan's laugh is crazy. But Addison Van Malice's is bananas. And Dylan's inventions are certainly super-villainous. But Addison Van Malice's are demonic When their teacher, Ms. Ick, announces a Diabolical Robot Building Contest, Dylan sees his opportunity to prove that he really is the most evil villain of all. But Addison's not giving in without a fight. And so begins a competition of skill and wits that doesn't go the way anyone expected...

The utterly normal Snivels find themselves the parents of an exceptional childa supervillain. But like all loving parents, they applaud his achievements (You... are the very best and cleverest super-villain in the whole wide world!) and send him to the perfect school: an academy for the villainous and vile. But school offers young Dylan a rude awakeningas it so often does to the doted-upon childin the form of Addison Van Malice, whose blue hair, eye patch, chic costume, and icy demeanor scream villainy. Is it possible that Dylan isnt so special after all? Readers will easily pick up on the satiric notes in Campbells comedy, and his jaunty, vivid characters will remind some of them of a Pixar film (in fact, Dylans purple eye mask, a tip-off that hes bad to the bone, resembles the ones worn by the stars of The Incredibles). To his credit, Campbell (The Mermaid and the Shoe) doesnt engineer a rapprochement between his two rivalsthe book ends both Addison and Dylan giving as good as they get. Ages 46. Agent: Lori Nowicki, Painted Words. (Feb.)
