The super (like, actually, with powers and stuff) series from the amazingly talented Sophy Henn, award-winning author and illustrator of Bad Nana ! The perfect read for children aged 7, 8, 9 and upwards, and for fans of Dork Diaries , Tom Gates, Amelia Fang, Wimpy Kid and Dog Man.

"A SPECTACULAR superhero story that fizzes with fun on every page!" - Liz Pichon , bestselling author of the TOM GATES series.


BEING A SUPERHERO IS THE BEST THING EVER, RIGHT? WRONG!

HELLO! My name is PIZAZZ and I'm a superhero . . . You probably think that's really AWESOME, and while it can be, it's also REEEEEEEAAALLLLY annoying.

I guess it was sort of going OK (I say, "sort of" - I still have to wear a silly cape and save the world all the time) until this NEW KID showed up, and started WOWING everyone with their super powers. Yep, SUPER POWERS - just what this town needs, another super . . . Who just happens to have the coolest name ever: Jett .

And now, because of Serena and her gang of Populars, I have to compete against Jett in an almighty and ultimate SUPER-OFF.

But it's fine. I mean, even if I lose, there's space for two SUPERS in this school, isn't there?!

Hilariously narrated by reluctant superhero Pizazz, and brimming with Sophy's distinctive illustrations and comic-book strips.

PRAISE for PIZAZZ:
"Blocky comic-style panels, a fire-farting granddad and a conservationist message make for accessible, quirky reading" - Guardian , Children's Book of the Month
"Sophy Henn's funny new series [...] a witty and original reminder that superheroes are human too" - Sunday Times , Children's Book of the Week
"Full-page illustrations, comic-strip sequences, quirky typography and dramatic chapter openers ensure this book will appeal to more reluctant readers" - The i
"Sophy Henn's lively, energetic story should be a hit with anyone who finds it hard to fit in" - Financial Times
"Perfect for fans of her previous series Bad Nana, with the same level of illustration and zany text throughout" - Booktrust
