Synopsis

Dylan the Villain by K. G. Campbell

Dylan's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Snivels, have always told him that he is the very best and cleverest super-villain in the whole wide world. And Dylan's confident that it's true, until he starts school and meets Addison Van Malice. Sure, Dylan's costume is scary. But Addison Van Malice's is bone-chilling. And yes, Dylan's laugh is crazy. But Addison Van Malice's is bananas. And Dylan's inventions are certainly super-villainous. But Addison Van Malice's are demonic! When their teacher, Ms. Slither, announces a Diabolical Robot Building Contest, Dylan sees his opportunity to prove that he really is the most evil villain of all. But Addison's not giving in without a fight. And so begins a competition that doesn't go the way anyone expected...

Reviews

Readers will easily pick up on the satiric notes in Campbell's comedy, and his jaunty, vivid characters will remind some of them of a Pixar film. --Publishers Weekly Sprinkled with terrific jokes. --Kirkus Reviews Outstanding. --School Library Journal A playful take on first experiences with competition. --Booklist Young fans of Disney TV's The Descendants and kids who adore the cinematic Minions will find the villainous Dylan particularly appealing. --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books The well-paced narrative's comedic timing reinforces the absurdity of the premise. --The Horn Book An Amazon.com Best Book the Month (March 2016) One of Scholastic Teacher's 50 Sensational Books of Summer A Texas Library Association 2x2 Reading List selection
