              A hilarious, illustrated middle-grade adventure about a superhero with no superpowers! Should appeal to readers who enjoy the Captain Underpants and Wimpy Kid series. - School Library Connection When Murph Cooper begins his new school several weeks into the year, he can't help bu...t feel a bit out of his depth. And it's not because he's worried about where to sit, making friends, and fitting in. It's because his mom has accidentally enrolled him at a school for superheroes. And unlike his fellow students, who can control the weather or fly or conjure tiny horses from thin air, Murph has no special abilities whatsoever. But Murph's totally normal abilities might just be what the world needs. 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 . . . and when he comes after the best and the brightest, it's up to Murph to be the real hero. With black-and-white illustrations throughout, this laugh-out-loud story proves that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

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.

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!
