Cartoon Kid by Jeremy Strong
You’ll never GUESS what Mr Butternut said at school today: 'This is your first day with me and I can see that there is something amazing about you . . . all of you are hiding a BIG SECRET.’ And do you know what it is? We are all SUPERHEROES. I nearly fell off my chair! Then we had to choose our superhero names. I’m Casper the Cartoon Kid, my best friend’s Big Feet Pete and moaning Noella Niblet – she’s the Incredible Sulk! Now we can fight injustice AND Gory and Tory the Vampire Twins. They’ve stolen something that belongs to us and we want it back – WHAM-BAM-JELLY AND-JAM!
The story is one which children everywhere daydream of - becoming a superhero!
Another great read by Jeremy Strong! A book which will appeal to children everywhere, either to read themselves or to share with others. Suitable for children age 7+ (reading age) and will have children laughing out loud at the turn of each page!
The book is interspersed with cartoon strips and cartoon like pictures to accompany the story and the text varies throughout the book along with the story.
I recommend this book as a gift for children age 7+. It will be loved by all and give lots of laughter.
Thank you to Puffin Books for sending me the book to review.
