Van Draanen, Wendelin – Secret Identity (Shredderman 1)
Illus. by Brian Biggs, c2004, 138 p.
Description – Realistic Fiction (First Person), Intermediate Grade Chapter Book
Review – What a great book! Nolan (aka Nerd) Byrd adopts a secret identity in order to seek revenge on the 5th grade class bully…Alvin (aka Bubba) Bixby. The story is a little far fetched, but believable and the outcome will make you want to stand up and cheer for Nolan and his terrific teacher. The pen and ink illustrations are a plus.
Curriculum Connections – Great read-aloud for intermediate grades. Character Education is a natural connection as teasing and bullying are the main themes of the book. Could also serve as a springboard to writing a newspaper article or other creative writing assignment.
Standards – Personal Health and Fitness – HPF1.IFC1C, HPF2.I.HE1B
Awards – 2005 Maine Student Book Award
Grade level – The story takes place in a fifth grade classroom, but 3rd and 4th graders would also enjoy this book.
