The Spinny Icky Showdown (The Adventures of Arnie the Doughnut) Reviews

UPDATE TIME: 2017-10-22 
Review Score: 5 out of 5 star From 3 user ratings

" The students at my school can't get enough of Arnie the Doughnut. They seem to be attracted by the humor and illustrations. " said.

" My 9 year old gave this 4.5 stars and my 11 year old gave it 3.0 stars. Fun story but my youngest who's reluctant reader of chapter books thought this latest in statement of the series had too much text (more than previous two) and wouldn't read it independently. We love the silliness of Arnie and Peezo. " said.

Arnie the Doughnut, The Spinny Icky Show:
This book is from the point of view of a donut named Arnie. He leads the reader through his view of his trip of being on the game show The Spinny Icky Show. Throughout the book he competes with his friend Pizza doing many competitions. He has to collect penny’s with chopsticks and tightrope over cheese.
The main reason I liked and read this book was because it was so funny. Throughout the book the donut Arnie was always making jokes. I also liked how it was many different charachers such as people, foods, and other things.

"In this graphic novel series, Arnie and his friend Peezo are selected as participants in a game show that moves from town to town. They are sure they can handle most of the challenging obstacles, but for Peezo, the threat of Nick Pumpernickel keeps him shaking in his crust. After all, Peezo is a slice of pizza. Along with some of their other friends in the town of Yummy Valley--Well, of course!--they figure out a way to stymy Nick and make sure his brawn doesn't triumph. Many elementary readers will enjoy this title and its jokes if shared aloud. This book, part of a series, prove that doughnuts have uses other than for consumption. " said.

"Arnie and Peezo are back in an all new adventure. This time they are excited to be participating in their favorite 'reality' show called The Spinny Icky Showdown. But with a pickpocket hiding amongst the participants and Peezo's fear of the Pumpernator (a pumpernickel loaf who is very muscly) threaten to ruin things for everyone. But Arnie steps in and makes a choice that changes everything and the chaos that ensues is quite hilarious. It amazes me that I find these so funny. I'm not sure what it is but kids seem to like it too, whether it is the wordplay or just the plain silliness of it all, this series is a sure fire winner for those reluctant readers who like chapter books but love lots of illustrations with their text." said.

"Arnie, the Doughnut and his buddy Peezo, who happens to be a talking piece of pizza are very stoked to learn that a TV gameshow is coming to Yummy Valley! They sign up and are chosen to compete with other locals, or Icksters for the Spinny Icky Showdown program! Of course they do compete heartily against the other teams from Yummy Valley in several events! Their greatest concern is whether or not Arnie and Peezo as The Dough Brothers can defeat the Pumpernator, a pumped up piece of Pumpernickel Bread who hates to lose! This book is full of puns, inuendos and wordplay and chock full of kid level silliness! It will be a definite favorite of all readers and is great for those students who are low level upper graders! Definitely students will not find Arnie the Doughnut on the shelves in the library, likely most always checked out" said.

" This was a fun book to read with my little one. It has a few things that I appreciate in a children's book such as Team work, Sportsmanship, and being able to accept losing! LOVE Arnie the doughnut and Pezzo the pizza aka Dough Bros... " said.


It doesn't get any sillier than Arnie the doughnut and his friend Peezo, who is a slice of pizza. The two friends decide to enter an obstacle race called The Spinny Icky Showdown. All of the race's rounds are silly challenges with names involving ick-words, such as the "chopstick nickel pick", which contestants must complete wearing knickers. Then comes "blood- thirsty ticks," and "rickety toothpick tightrope." The characters are diverse - doughnut, pizza, police officer, cave man, and the diabolical Nick Pumpernickel, the friends' nemesis, who is a pumped up loaf of pumpernickel bread. I know, you thought you'd seen it all. Along with the extreme high jinks, suspense and word play, Keller incorporates entertaining definitions of words that may stump young readers.
