Publisher Review

This is such a funny book ... It's really an adventure story about an ordinary boy, a lovable hero and crazy villains! Suitable for girls or boys. Cracking read!! * Toppsta * The Kid Normal books are just brilliant, Murph is a great character, so likeable and really funny. These books make you laugh out loud and are really hard to put down * Toppsta * Although this book is delightfully fun and witty, which it really is, it also has many serious elements too. I was enthralled by the plot, which has so many twists and it kept me giggling the entire time! Equally as good as the first book in the series, I could read and reread it over and over again * Toppsta * PRAISE FOR KID NORMAL: 'So funny, it's almost criminal * Independent I * 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 * 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 * Packed with very amusing asides, it's a fun and fast-paced read that will make James and Smith into children's heroes * Western Mail * Chock full of slapstick humour, outrageous characters and pop culture references. It mocks school pecking orders and will make all kids who have fallen foul of them feel much better about it. And somehow, it ties all the mania together in a credible and thrilling story * The Bookbag * A superlative adventure story that will resonate with children who like to read whacky, wild things * Books Monthly * This spoof superhero epic certainly delivers: deliciously dastardly villains, capes, tights and mild-mannered heroes. Yet it also explores familiar school anxieties that everyone else is smarter, stronger, better * BookTrust * A very promising start to a laugh-out-loud funny adventure series * Parents in Touch * Incredibly funny, witty and stuffed full of heart * Book Lover Jo *
