Synopsis

Captain Brainpower and the Mighty Mean Machine by Sam Lloyd

A fast-paced, action-packed, good-versus-evil adventure introducing a dynamic new picture book character. Meet Captain Brainpower. He's a superhero toy with a special superpower. It's not extreme strength or the ability to fly. It's BRAIN POWER! When he presses his Brain Button on his super suit, he has the most amazing brainwaves. So when he and his friend Mojo Mouse get thrown into the rubbish dump, Captain Brainpower needs to put his superpower to use - and FAST - because Mojo is about to be eaten by the Mighty Mean Machine! Using brain power and a huge heap of resourcefulness, Captain Brainpower makes a MEGA BRAIN PLANE from bits of old junk lying around the rubbish tip. Then, with great courage and some super stunts, he turns that Mighty Mean Machine into a blubbering hunk of junk. So, if there are any other unloved toys out there who get thrown onto the rubbish heap - it's Captain Brainpower and Mojo to the rescue! With bright, bold and animated artwork, this book will appeal to all those little ones who like their books high-energy and full of superhero action.
