Acquired: Bought used at a thrift store or book/garage sale.
Reason for Reading: son read aloud to me as his reader.
Both ds and I love the Jimmy Neutron cartoons so there is always going to be a fair amount of enjoyment from a storybook about Jimmy and his science inventions. This time it so hot out that even Sheen's Ultra Lord action figures are melting. Jimmy has a great idea using Carl's sunblock. He'll just magnify it's power and using a laser beam coat the sun with sunblock to cool things down a bit. And it works! Only it works too well and Jimmy may have just started the next ice age! Can Jimmy reverse the effects before the angry mob of townspeople get him?
Fun story, with a great, though over the top, of course, scientific solution to the problem. For a Level 2 reader the book was incredibly hard to read though, "Ready-to-Read" books are certainly not equivalent to other early reader series' levels.
