Mr. Particular: The World's Choosiest Champion! by Jason Kirschner [Review & Giveaway-Open USA/CANADA]


ISBN: 9781454918189
Meet Mr. Particular—the world’s choosiest champion! This superhero’s super picky: he says NO to squishy mud, gross green things, tucked-in shirts, humming, and anything with coconut. But, when his friends in the “Super-Duper Group” finally get fed up with his fussiness, can Mr. Particular prove that even the super-squeamish can save the day? This fun comic-book-style story will delight even the most finicky kids!

“I enjoyed Mr. Particular and so will you. This is a great book for kids—a terrific story, beautifully illustrated.” —David Letterman

My thoughts: This is a delightfully cute, cartoon style book that kids will really get a kick out of.

Mr. Particular just likes things just so and no mess and no muddle and certain types of food are off limits. In short, he is particular. He is finicky. He is set in having things look, feel, and done a certain way - his way.


He is the epitome of every little boy in that he is a caped super hero. This super hero is not a giant of a muscled man. No he is a kid. A boy. A dreaming-visions, strong-minded, little boy. And he is choosy about things and stuff. He is particular. And he is in a group of super-duper-friends who keep the universe safe from bad guys.

Just don't let there be humming because Mr. Particular is very particular about humming.


This is the author's debut children's picture book. I believe Jason Kirschner has a winner here and perhaps it is the beginning of lots of fun stuff for us to look forward to reading.

  4. My son is autistic so yes I sure do know someone who is finicky and particular. On top of that he comes from a strange family anyway. We are all a bit geeky and nerdy and just down right odd. :P

  6. I am a noisy person--I like to sing, and I laugh and talk pretty loudly, and listen to music cranked up to a crazy volume. But when I am driving, I want almost absolute quiet, especially if I am in a new place or in heavy traffic. It drives my children crazy because they want to whistle and sing and shout and carry on like we always do, and they just cannot understand why Mom is being so particular about noise just because she is driving in, oh, say rush hour traffic in Atlanta on a Friday!!!
