In a Nutshell: Humour | Adventure | Superpowers

Laugh your socks off with this brilliantly funny fantasy adventure from a debut author whose passions are writing and running. Alex Sparrow has always wanted to have a super-power and to be a super-agent; then in year 6 something really extraordinary happens to him. Together with a rather clever goldfish called Bob and Alex's new best friend Jess who just happens to have a super-power too they must make use of their unique strengths to find who is behind a villainous plot and save the day. Full of farts, jokes and superhero references this is a perfect read for fun-loving kids with ambitions to go far.

Readers will also enjoy Matt Brown’s Compton Valance series, or Jo Franklin’s Help! I’m a Genius.

Synopsis

Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink by Jennifer Killick

Alex Sparrow is a super-agent in training. He is also a human lie-detector. Working with Jess - who can communicate with animals - they must find out why their friends, and enemies, are all changing into polite and well behaved pupils. And exactly who is behind it all. This is a humorous tale full of farts, jokes and superhero references. Oh, and a rather clever goldfish called Bob. In a world where kids' flaws and peculiarities are being erased out of existence, Alex and Jess must rely on what makes them different to save the day.

Reviews

A brilliantly bonkers, side-splitting superhero story. M.G. Leonard

Stuffed full of humour, mystery and the unexpected, this hilarious adventure is a laugh-out-loud extravaganza of a read. Booklover Jo
