Editors Note Tucker MacBean's father has left and his mother is always either at work or in class, trying to finish college.  This leaves Tucker to watch out for his younger brother, Beech, while they secretly try to save up enough money so that their mother can quit her job.  When Tucker's favorite comic has a contest for kids to create the hero's new sidekick, he hopes he has found a way to help his mother and fix his family -- all he has to do is create the winning supercomic.  |    With thoughtful characterizations --  including Tucker's brother who has special needs -- copious black-and-white comic-book-like art, and an engaging storyline, this middle grade novel has humor, an enterprising main character, and the appeal of a comic-book adventure.
Annotation A seventh-grade boy's challenging family life and stress at school are mirrored in the adventures of the comic book character he creates. Tucker MacBean helps out with his little brother, Beecher, after school so that his mom can juggle work and school. But when he spies a contest in his favorite comic that would mean winning a college scholarship for his mom, Tucker hatches a plan. However, it means art club after school, so his mom needs to hire a sitter. However, when the sitter turns out to be arch nemesis and bully Sam Zawicki, Tucker doesn't know what he's going to do. Including a variety of issues, such as single parenting and children with special needs without hitting readers over the head, this middle grade novel is something special.
