Magic Pickle Versus the Egg Poacher
Graphix, 2008 - Juvenile Fiction - 141 pages
In book two of Scott Morse's funny send up of superheroes, eight-year-old JoJo is hard at work on her homework, when Magic Pickle bursts through her bedroom floor. The flying kosher dill needs her help: there's a bad egg in town. The Egg Poacher is working for the Brotherhood of Evil Produce. The Brotherhood wants him to kidnap a "wild kiwi" from the zoo, which they think could be a welcome addition to their rogue produce gang. Egg Poacher has already created havoc at the zoo and by the time Magic Pickle and JoJo arrive, it's lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
As zoo animals run amuck, Magic Pickle and JoJo have to stop that rotten egg. Ever crafty, the little girl makes fake signs to lure Egg Poacher to the reptile house, where Magic Pickle has a big surprise waiting for him: an egg-EATING snake! Yolk's on you, Poacher!
