Allen and Unwin; ISBN 9781741751864; 2008; p/b; 251pp
(Age Upper Primary/Lower Secondary) The funny and very silly adventure story of a group of adolescents who are thrown together because they all have a super power. Most of them are only low-grade superheroes who are still learning to use their powers and so they end up in some very unusual and often ridiculous situations. The stories are interspersed with emails, advertising banners, photos and other illustrations so the reader can look at the characters and their situations in a variety of formats.

Comment: There is a site for the book, which is recommended for boys, with teacher notes and activities.
