With fear and suspicion of Capes growing amongst the public, Heroes are forced underground, making it harder than ever to do their duty and combat evil wherever they find it. And all the while Knox is reaping the rewards of their efforts ... Can Kid Normal take down Knox and prove that superheroes aren't the enemy?

              The second epically funny adventure starring Murph Cooper and the Super Zeroes from Greg James and Chris Smith. Running a team of crime-fighting superheroes is a complicated business - especially when your mum's not allowed to know that you're doing it. But Murph Cooper is making... it work: he's a schoolkid by day and a member of the top-secret Heroes' Alliance by night. Not that anyone at The School seems to care. Most of Murph's teachers and classmates still believe that unless you have a proper superpower you can't be a real hero. But his achievements have caught the attention of at least one person ...Far away in a maximum security prison, the world's most notorious supervillain, Magpie, has just broken a 30-year silence. Magpie's special power? Draining heroes of their Capabilities and taking them for his own. And his first words? 'Bring Murph Cooper to me ...'

              The first book in a laugh-out-loud funny adventure series for 8+ readers from popular radio personalities Greg James and Chris Smith. When Murph Cooper rocks up to his new school several weeks into the beginning of term, he can't help but feel a bit out of his depth. And it's not... because he's worried about where to sit, and making friends, and fitting in, or not knowing where the loos are. It's because his mum has enrolled him at a school for superheroes by mistake. And unlike his fellow students, who can all control the weather or fly or conjure tiny horses from thin air, Murph has no special abilities whatsoever. But just because you don't have superpowers, it doesn't mean you can't save the day. Let's hope Murph realises that, and quick - because not far away is a great big bad guy who is half man and half wasp, and his mind is abuzz with evil plans ...It's time for Kid Normal to become a hero! Perfect for fans of David Solomons, David Baddiel and Danny Wallace.
