Two panels tell us how things ended in book one, then we are introduced to each superhero and their power. With that the story picks up where it left off in book one. Uncle Stanley didn't drop by just to say good work, he wants to enlist their help in defeating the evil Industry of scientists who are out to quieten children forever. He gives them costumes and communicators and they discover a plot by Kid-Rid Industries in their own school where they have enlisted the help of the mean lunch lady to introduce a special polite powder into the mac & cheese turning the children into polite mannered zombies. Loud Boy and friends must find a way to get the antidote distributed to all the children in town and hand the evil Mrs. Grossweiner over to the police. This one was even better than the first book! Uncle Stanley tells the kids the whole background story of the evil KR Industries and his part working for them until he found out they were evil. So we know have a complete background story on the kids (from book 1) and the evil scientists (this book). Once the story is wrapped up and every one is celebrating, the scene is is set for the next book and the kids are called to their next mission causing the reader to be excited for the next in the series. Lots of action, fun superpowers, gross bad guys, and humour make this an excellent sequel to what is proving to be a fine series for the younger set.
