Cartoon Kid

You’ll never GUESS what Mr Butternut said at school today:

‘This is your first day with me and I can see that there is something amazing about you… all of you are hiding a BIG SECRET.’

And do you know what it is? We are all SUPERHEROES. I nearly fell off my chair!

Then we had to choose our superhero names. I’m Casper the Cartoon Kid, my best friend’s Big Feet Pete and moaning Noella Niblet – she’s the Incredible Sulk!

Now we can fight injustice AND Gory and Tory the Vampire Twins. They’ve stolen something that belongs to us and we want it back – WHAM-BAM-JELLY AND-JAM!

Our Review Panel says...

This is a chapter book aimed at the 7-9 age range, written in Jeremy Strong’s trademark style of laugh-out-loud humour. When new teacher Mr Butternut tells the class that they are all superheroes, Casper and his friends choose their superhero names and use their new-found confidence to solve problems big and small.
