The Adventures of a Wimpy Superhero

(2015)
(The first book in the Adventures of a Wimpy Superhero series)
A novel by

 
 
Josh Walker doesn't fit in at school. None of the girls ever notices him, and his only friend is a strange boy with ginger hair called Henry. Then one day, tired of reading comics and fantasising about being a superhero, he decides to become one. First of all he needs a superhero name, a superhero costume and some superpowers. Then he needs to find some crime to fight.

Armed with plastic handcuffs and stink bombs, and stuck with his dependable but incompetent sidekick, Henry, Josh becomes embroiled in a dark world of crime, armed gangs and people illegally parking in disabled parking spaces.

The Adventures of a Wimpy Superhero tells the story of the everyday dilemmas of superheroes in the real world through the hilarious diary of a 15-year-old boy. It asks the big questions, such as: why would someone want to fight crime? Wouldn't they get in the way of police (and school) work? And why would a tight-fitting Lycra costume help?

Tim Collins is originally from Manchester but now lives in London. He is the author of over 30 books, including Wimpy Vampire, Cosmic Colin and Dorkius Maximus. His books have been translated into over 20 languages, and he has won the Lincolnshire Young People's Book Award and Manchester Fiction City.
