'So funny, it's almost criminal' INDEPENDENT 'Outrageous capers' GUARDIAN YOU DON'T NEED SUPERPOWERS TO BE A HERO ... Or do you?

Chris Smith is an award-winning author, broadcaster and parent (a mug saying `World's Greatest Dad' counts as an award, right?). He grew up in leafy Northamptonshire and now lives in not-as-leafy North London with his wife, son and a cat called Mabel, who can talk. If you listen very carefully to the George Michael song `Outside' you can hear a sample of Chris reading the news. He makes excellent tea. Greg James is also an award-winning author and broadcaster, best known for hosting the Radio 1 Breakfast Show, but he hasn't won any awards for being a parent, because he isn't one. He circumnavigated the M25 during his childhood and is now living with his wife, Bella, and their dog, Bonnie, in North London. Greg and Chris's houses are connected by a secret tunnel that they use for exchanging ideas via an elaborate pulley system. He makes terrible tea. Illustrator Erica Salcedo studied Fine Art at Castilla-La Mancha University, before going on to study for a masters in Graphic Design. She uses a mixture of techniques to create her illustrations - from hand-drawing to digital manipulation - and always remembers to add a pinch of humour. Wolfish Stew (Bloomsbury), written by Suzi Moore, was Erica's first picture book. She lives in Cuenca, Spain. KidNormal.com


So funny, it's almost criminal * Independent I * Outrageous capers for eight and up ... Amusingly surreal super-powers and a trust yourself message combine to strong effect with Erica Salcedo's entertaining, huge-eyed images * Guardian * An extraordinary tale about an ordinary boy in a world of heroes ... A fast-paced, humorous adventure with likeable heroes and a suitably ridiculous, evil villain * Times Educational Supplement *
