Send for a Superhero!

by Michael Rosen, illustrated By Katharine McEwen - £6.99  Walker Books Ltd (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781406355505 | ISBN 10: 140635550x

A bedtime read turns into a very funny superhero adventure in this exciting blend of picture book and comic book storytelling.

It's time for bed and Dad is reading Emily and little Elmer a story... "Danger! Filth and Vacuum, The Terrible Two, are trying to destroy the world!" Who will save the day? Steel Man isn't strong enough; Flying-Through-the-Air-Very-Fast-Man isn't fast enough and Incredibly-Big-Strong-Green-Man isn't big, strong and green enough. Who can help? Clever young Brad 40 has a brilliant idea: he calls on a most unlikely superhero: Incredibly Boring Man, who sends the villains and everyone else to sleep!
 
Filth and Vacuum are captured by the army, Brad is a hero, and Dad thinks Emily and Elmer have fallen asleep too. But he's wrong...
