The first book in a laugh-out-loud funny adventure series for 8+ readers from popular radio personalities Greg James and Chris Smith.

When Murph Cooper rocks up to his new school several weeks into the beginning of term, he can't help but feel a bit out of his depth.

And it's not because he's worried about where to sit, and making friends, and fitting in, or not knowing where the loos are. It's because his mum has enrolled him at a school for superheroes by mistake. And unlike his fellow students, who can all control the weather or fly or conjure tiny horses from thin air, Murph has no special abilities whatsoever.

But just because you don't have superpowers, it doesn't mean you can't save the day. Let's hope Murph realises that, and quick – because not far away is a great big bad guy who is half man and half wasp, and his mind is abuzz with evil plans …

It's time for Kid Normal to become a hero!

Perfect for fans of David Solomons, David Baddiel and Danny Wallace.

Featuring brilliant illustrations by Erica Salcedo throughout.

Industry Reviews

An extraordinary tale about an ordinary boy in a world of heroes ... Kid Normal is a fast-paced, humorous adventure with likeable heroes and a suitably ridiculous, evil villain * Times Educational Supplement *
So funny, it's almost criminal ... A fun and fast-paced read * Independent I *
Outrageous capers ... Amusingly surreal super-powers and a trust yourself message combine to strong effect with Erica Salcedo's entertaining, huge-eyed images * Guardian *
A superhero story with a twist * National Geographic Kids *
Packed with very amusing asides, it's a fun and fast-paced read that will make James and Smith into children's heroes * Western Mail *
Chock full of slapstick humour, outrageous characters and pop culture references. It mocks school pecking orders and will make all kids who have fallen foul of them feel much better about it. And somehow, it ties all the mania together in a credible and thrilling story * The Bookbag *
A superlative adventure story that will resonate with children who like to read whacky, wild things * Books Monthly *
This spoof superhero epic certainly delivers: deliciously dastardly villains, capes, tights and mild-mannered heroes. Yet it also explores familiar school anxieties that everyone else is smarter, stronger, better * BookTrust *
A very promising start to a laugh-out-loud funny adventure series * Parents in Touch *
Incredibly funny, witty and stuffed full of heart * Book Lover Jo *
