Vordak Is a Funny Illustrated Novel

It has been a while since I reviewed a Vordak book, and to be frank they are as snarky and just plain entertaining as ever.  No one can resist Vordak's snide charm which will provide some laugh out loud moments for your child.  So what are you waiting for?  Don't you want to know about Vordak's sinister exploits to rule the world?

Title:       Vordak the Incomprehensible: Time Travel Trouble

Author:   Scott Seegert

Target:    Grades 3-6

Series:     Yes

What this book is about: 
Vordak is a snarky, smart aleck villain who lacks the skill and the smarts to outwit his arch nemesis Commander Virtue.  However, he doesn’t see it that way!  As he insults the reader, who apparently cannot see and appreciate his villainous ways, he works to try and capture Commander Virtue - for the 39th time (all other attempts have proven unsuccessful.)  In this book he creates a time machine to take him back to Commander Virtue’s youth, in an attempt to stop him while he is young and vulnerable.  However, as you can imagine, his attempts prove unsuccessful - but hilarious - once again.

Why I love this book:  
Vordak’s unwavering faith in his talent, in the face of complete and utter failure set the stage for a hilarious story.  Of course, when you add in his superiors attitude towards the reader who sees Vordak’s impending doom, kids can’t help but love this story.  

I like the way Vordak addresses the reader directly.  It helps to pull them into the story immediately.   The visuals are also well done and are a perfect compliment.

Who this book is for: 
The format is like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, so kids who like well illustrated novels will enjoy this one.  It is a good pick for reluctant readers because the story is not overwhelming and the humor is abundant.

You do not have to read the books in order to appreciate them.  They each stand alone.

Final thoughts:
Muahahahahahahah!  Kids will have wonderful time reading about Vordak’s sinister exploits to rule the world!
