Author Sophy Henn Published by Simon & Schuster Children’s ISBN 1471194159 EAN 9781471194153 BIC Code Cover Paperback
The super (like, actually, with powers and stuff) series from the amazingly talented Sophy Henn, award-winning author and illustrator of Bad Nana! The perfect read for children aged 7, 8, 9 and upwards, and for fans of Dork Diaries, Tom Gates, Amelia Fang, Wimpy Kid and Dog Man.
BEING A SUPERHERO IS THE BEST THING EVER, RIGHT? WRONG! HELLO! My name is PIZAZZ and I’m a superhero…
You probably think that’s really AWESOME, and while it can be, it’s also REEEEEEEAAALLLLY annoying. I guess it was sort of going OK (I say, “sort of” – I still have to wear a silly cape and save the world all the time) until this NEW KID showed up, and started WOWING everyone with their super powers.
Yep, SUPER POWERS – just what this town needs, another super . . .
Who just happens to have the coolest name ever: Jett. And now, because of Serena and her gang of Populars, I have to compete against Jett in an almighty and ultimate SUPER-OFF. But it’s fine. I mean, even if I lose, there’s space for two SUPERS in this school, isn’t there?!
Hilariously narrated by reluctant superhero Pizazz, and brimming with Sophy’s distinctive illustrations and comic-book strips.
