Fresh from their victory over the nasty Kaspar Snit, — who was last seen trying to steal the fountains of Rome in The Fortress of Kaspar Snit — the Blande family have certainly earned a rest. They’re not actually an average family (what average family has the power to fly?), but they like to relax in front of the TV like everyone else.

Their favorite show (except for Dad) is the hugely popular hit, “The Zoomers.” When it’s Zoomer time, mom makes a batch of popcorn, Solly settles his rat GW on his shoulder, and Eleanor watches avidly as the Zoomer family of superheroes set off on their weekly adventure. But Eleanor’s noticed an odd detail: the director is one I. M. Partankiss. And that’s none other than Kaspar Snit. Surely he must have reformed? After all, he is planning to donate a million dollars to his beloved native land, Verulia. Problem is, “The Zoomers” won’t be seen on TV until a million dollars has been raised.

The Blande parents are off to a romantic vacation in Tuscany and Eleanor and Solly are left in the care of their new, extraordinary nanny, Mrs. Leer, and so the fun begins. The adventures they embark on are much more exciting than anything they’ve seen on “The Zoomers.”

The thousands of readers who made The Fortress of Kaspar Snit such a success will welcome Cary Fagan’s laugh-out-loud sequel. Not only does this book stand alone as a hilarious story, but it also introduces the most memorable nanny since Mary Poppins.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Not my cup of tea. Read it for Silver Birch as a kid and didn't really enjoy it. May be a good read for someone else though.

Editorial Reviews

“Superheroes, supervillain, superbook! This is an amazing and funny story.****”-OWL Magazine, youth reviewer “Fans of the first book, The Fortress of Kaspar Snit, will be delighted with this humorous, action- packed sequel. Snappy dialogue and a fast-paced plot keep the story moving. While some readers will be reminded of The Incredibles…the Blandes seem truly real in ways that count: flawed and very human, they never lose sight of the emotional ties that bind them together. …readers will love this satisfying sequel and beg for further adventures.” —Quill & Quire Praise for The Fortress of Kaspar Snit: “…Fagan has a gift for the rhythm of story, and his sly humor is always unexpected and entertaining.” — The Toronto Star Praise for Daughter of the Great Zandini: “Fagan proves himself a wonderful writer with a rare comic gift.” — Publishers Weekly “…a wonderfully whimsical and … heart-warming, story….” — Times-Colonist
