Author: Andy Stanton Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 16/11/2011

Hilarious story with trademark Stanton-esque nonsense. Matthew Buzzington has a superpower - he can turn into a fly! It's just that it hasn't happened yet, which is pretty bad timing really because there are robbers and flying pineapples out to get him. Can he make his superpower work? A fun, chunky format including stickers. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 7+
