3.5 stars for this easy chapter book that appears to be about an ordinary kid dealing with very unusual situations. It is only at the end that we come to realize it is really a (potential) superhero creation story that sets the stage for adventures to come. It is this potential established as a series launching pad that bumped my rating from 3 to 4 stars, because it's a strong premise (stronger than it is a solitary story).
Despite the series name, the tone is one of mild lunacy better described as strange and quirky than wacky or absurd--it's more grounded in reality than some of the other options that operate with freely unbound imagination and without rules--yet it's a very charming and approachable strangeness. There's a fun to the randomness and a serious puzzle to solve. I enjoyed it and am curious to check out the books that follow.
