The Escapades of Clint McCool - Octo-Man and the Headless Monster

My last trip to the Book Loft was a successful trip for picking up new to me and first in a series books.  Last week I shared Super Turbo and this week I'm share The Escapades of Clint McCool - Octo-Man and the Headless Monster.  Clint McCool is a funny character.  He is active.  He has lots of ideas that are always bubbling out of his head and sometimes into action.  ML and Marco are coming home with Clint McCool for a play date after school.  On their way home from school there is a monster in the street.  Yes, it's a human dressed as a monster on a movie set.  Clint McCool is so excited he runs right to the monster on the movie set and touches him.  Oops, the monster's arm falls off.  He and his friends are banned from the set but Clint wants to fix what went wrong.  Fixing this escapade turns into a full time job for Clint and his friends try to be a bit more cautious.  They do return to the movie set.  Things do get fixed but I think all readers will be surprised how that happens.
