Hair-raising super deeds are Charlie Applejack’s speciality. Or, so he thinks. But, his skills are not enough to get him into Super School. Poor Charlie! Luckily, he has the chance to show his skills when general Pandemonium captures the world’s super heroes leaving every pair of pants on the planet at his mercy. Can Charlie save them from being vaporised? Hugely entertaining, this is a quick-moving and entertaining adventure.


Boy Zero Wannabe Hero The Petrifying Plot of the Plummeting Pants by Peter Millett

Charlie Applejack's career as a superhero might be over before it's even begun. His mother wants him to choose a safe job as a TV game show host and the Super School has rejected him because his super powers aren't super enough. However, when the evil villain and wannabe rock star General Pandemonium captures all of the world's superheroes, and threatens to vaporise every pair of pants on the planet, it's up to Charlie to save the day. Will he be a superhero - or will he be a superzero?

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
