School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-5-In this second book of the series, superhero chicken, Gordon Bleu, and his little brother Benny (still partially in his super-strength shell) come to the aid of Miss Honey Comb, a well-loved opera singer in Fowladelphia when she is chicknapped by the evil Dr. Screech. Dr. Screech plans to use her super-loud voice and his megaphone to shake the city to bits. Gordon Bleu and Benny save Miss Honey Comb and Fowladelphia and make it home by dinnertime. Full-color comic-style illustrations with short blocks of text may help readers transition from beginning chapter books to traditional chapter books. Many jokes and puns will keep the attention of eager new readers looking for a fast-paced, funny adventure with unlikely superheroes.-Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampa (c) Copyright 2014.

Horn Book Review

Second-grade chick Gordon Blue and his younger (not-yet-fully-hatched) brother Benny are accidentally dipped into a vat of toxic sludge that transforms them into superheroes. In these openers, the pair must save Fowladelphia from two different villains. Jam-packed with poultry puns, this transitional series uses language appropriately challenging for emerging readers while retaining a comfort level with a hybrid of traditional and comic full-color illustrations.

Kirkus Book Review

Fowladelphia is under attack by Dr. Screech. Can Kung Pow Chicken save the day? Gordon Blue may appear to be an average, ordinary second-grade chicken, but not long ago, he and his brother, Benedict, fell into a vat of toxic sludge in their uncle's lab and emerged with superchicken powers. Gordon and Benny now have secret superidentities: Kung Pow Chicken and Egg Drop. In series opener Let's Get Cracking (2014), they put Granny Goosebumps away for her evil plot to make money off of featherless chickens. Now, they have to keep their secret identities secret (especially from their mom), and nosy reporter Sam Snood is trying to expose them. When opera singer Honey Comb is chicken-napped by Dr. Screech during a performance, Kung Pow and Egg Drop crack into action. Dr. Screech gets away. Unfortunately, Sam Snood snaps some pictures and insinuates that Kung Pow is in cahoots with Dr. Screech! The boys have to enlist Uncle Quack's help to hunt down the nefarious evildoer. Can they save the opera and Fowladelphia and clear their names? Marko's second of four Kung Pow Chicken high-interest, fast reads for the just-ready-for-chapters reader continues Gordon's adventures nicely, with plenty of punny action in the colorful mix of comic panels and short paragraphs of text. Fans will be glad Kung Pow has at least two more adventures on the way. (Graphic/fiction hybrid. 5-7)]] Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
