Review: Derek Dool Supercool: Bust a Move (Book #1)

Derek Dool thinks he’s supercool.

His friends are not so sure, but they are sticking by him.

In book one in this fun new series by Adrian Beck, Derek is on a mission to prove he is the best dancer at Rutsmell Primary School.

The school disco is coming up, and Derek is determined to bust a move and prove to his classmates he is the coolest kid in school. 

And definitely cooler than Carmichael Cruz, Derek’s archenemy.

Derek starts working on his moves, but things just keep getting in the way. Things like a principal who’s out to get him, totally unjustified detention and, well, not really knowing how to dance.

With the help of his two best friends Booger and Big Denise, Derek is positive he’s going to win the disco dance-off against Cruz. But can he do it?

Derek Dool Supercool: Bust a Move is a wickedly funny junior novel, perfect for kids who love a fun read that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

With jokes galore, stacks of silliness and funky illustrations by Scott Edgar throughout, it’s a great read for junior readers. And the start of a great new series.
