Albie is the star of lots of action-packed picture books and in this one he’s challenged by his mum to tidy his room - against the clock. Before you can say ‘Pick up that Lego!’ he’s been whisked into a much more exciting adventure with a band of flying junior superheroes. Supervillain The Collector, who is equipped with some fabulous gadgets, has snatched a piece from Albie’s favourite jigsaw. Can he get it back, save his friend Scoot and tidy up before Mum’s deadline? He can and he does! How it all happens proves a very satisfying story which unfolds at just the right pace over lively spreads packed full of detail, and it’s perfect for any young wannabe superheroes. ~ Andrea Reece
