Iguana Boy Saves the World With a Triple Cheese Pizza
Illustrated by Rikin Parekh6-9 years
One boy. One disappointing superpower. Can Dylan tame a bunch of hyper iguanas and come up with a masterful plan to save the WORLD? Yeah, probably ... but he's going to need a MASSIVE cheese pizza. Perfect for fans of Tom Gates, Future Ratboy and My Brother is a Superhero.
Dylan has wanted a superpower for as long as he can remember, especially since his brother and sister have got really cool ones.
But when his wish finally comes true, Dylan is MIGHTILY disappointed. For Dylan has become ... Iguana Boy. He can talk to Iguanas ... RUBBISH!
And when supervillain Celina Shufflebottom kidnaps all the superheroes in London, Dylan must work out how to use his new team of chatty iguanas to save the day. He's going to have to think outside the box, (the pizza box), if he's going to become the hero he's always dreamed of.
If he's going to make Iguana Boy cool.
'HILARIOUS and so silly - superheroes, reptiles and pizza ... AWESOME, why didn't I think of that?!' Tom Fletcher
It's not often that you come across a children's book with a voice as strong as Bishop's unique spin on the super kids genre. His quippy conversational style of writing is perfect for parents reading to their younger kids and smart enough to keep young readers interested on their own. Providing the perfect sidekick to Bishop's text is Rikin Parekh's fun and quirky illustrations. One part Quentin Blake and one part Dr Seuss, Parkeh's depictions of Bishop's crazy world are perfectly in tune with the voice and feel of story and really help bring the story of Iguana Boy to life. Of all the child superheroes on the bookshelf, if I was a cat stuck up a tree I'd definitely want Dylan (sorry, Iguana Boy) to rescue me.
Very funny and slightly bonkers, action packed story. Great for newly developing readers.
