Boys and girls, I present to you, the galaxy’s most exciting new superhero – Charlie Applejack (AKA Hero Boy), the star of Peter Millet’s new series, Boy Zero Wannabe Hero. He can fly, turn invisible and he’s super strong (well, sort of). He has all these abilities, but he’s also super clumsy, so he fails his superhero test and gets rejected from the Super School.
However, the world’s newest supervillain, General Pandemonium, is hatching his evil plans to take over the world. He plans to capture all of the superheroes in the world and zap their power so that they can’t stop him unleashing his super weapon, the Undie-taker-downer. Will there be an outbreak of bare bottoms all over the world or will Charlie save the day?
Boy Zero Wannabe Hero is perfect for those of you who love Captain Underpants or just want something fun to read. This book has everything, from an evil villain who wants to be rock star, deadly machines that keep breaking down, a famous superhero that can’t stop farting and one who still has a lot to learn. 9 out of 10.
