Best friends Monty and Sylvester have been busy perfecting their 'super hero' skills. They've read the manual, they've got the outfits and now they are raring to go! All missions undertaken, however impossible...

Better watch out, super villains, these two mean business!

A brilliantly original picture book about friendship, imagination and super-powered vacuum cleaners from debut author and illustrator Carly Gledhill.

My 5-year-old son really enjoyed this book. He thought that Sylvester's workout and the superheroes using a vaccuum cleaner to catch the baddies were really funny. The illustrations were bold and colourful and he loved reading all of the speech bubbles. The ending was a triumph of good over evil, with a funny twist to the tale. He said he'd recommend this book to his friends.

My five and three year olds love this book! It's about Monty and Sylvester, two superheroes who are trying to save people but get a bit muddled when doing so. The illustrations are lovely, I like the additions of speech and thought bubbles containing humour suitable for children. It's a nice read and the children were eager to see how they would get out of their situations.

The story of these two unlikely superheroes is silly - in a good way - and is well suited to make the reading experience fun and interactive. The illustrations are great too and can be appreciated by both children and grown-ups!

A fun and silly picture story book that both my 2 & 5 year olds enjoyed. The story of two novice superheros is a little bit of fun and fancy with no real moral or agenda, just some superhero fun.

This is a beautiful quality hardback book with bold and engaging illustrations, so much to look at on each page and lots of little bits to giggle at. We really enjoyed it much more then just a story book.

Me and my daughter read this book in the morning and for the rest of the day we played Superheroes because of it! Amazing illustrations with a funny storyline, we follow the Monty and Sylvester as they take on their new superhero jobs- after reading the manual and getting fit of course. Lots of child friendly humour and simple words, my 3 year old enjoyed this book but she did ask a lot of questions that we felt the book didn't really explain very well e.g are the baddies good now because they've been sucked up the vacuum cleaner. Having said that, she has wanted to read it again already so it can't be that confusing for her.

Monty and Sylvester fighting crime with an every day household object Before numerous twists and turns resulting in the release of the baddies who then join teams with Monty & Sylvester.  This book produced two very different responses.  My 5 year old loved the story and found the storyline very funny and enjoyed telling me why it couldn’t possibly happen. My two year old and myself were slightly more underwhelmed and felt the story wasn’t exciting and not descriptive enough.

Great illustrations but the story wasn't as good as expected. I can see it has humour within the text, but perhaps suited better to younger aged children. I do like that you can ask children to keep an eye out for clues & they might be able to make predictions on the text.

This book is written in the style similar to a comic book. It’s a quick and easy story to read, perfect before bedtime. Fun story about the characters and the mission they go on. Nothing scary or overly exciting. Great illustration too.
