Publisher's Summary

When Murph Cooper rocks up to his new school, 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 Murph has no special abilities whatsoever. But just because you don't have superpowers, it doesn't mean you can't save the day....

Easy listen, mostly

Loved this, especially for the “sound effects”! Those cracked me up!!! The only part I didn’t care for was the screechy voice of the wasp, it killed my ears!! I was VERY tempted to skip several of those parts, but they were too important to the story line. :/ Overall still a great story!!! :D

Sparkling performance and story

Is it wrong to like an audiobook more than reading it oneself? Lazy, perhaps? When our favorite authors and radio presenters Greg James and Chris Smith read their books to us, we can’t help but be charmed all over again. Greg’s voicing of the characters, especially the villains, is spot on and hilarious. Chris’s narration is energetic and fun. We are fans of the series and can’t wait to hear the next book.

Simple, good humor

I really enjoyed the humor in this book. It has an almost Neil Gaiman feel to both the writing and performance, it has the innocent humor of childhood just starting to grow up. Bad things happen, but it’s okay because most people react in a funny way.

I loved Nectar. He was a brilliant character! I also liked when the school children chose their superhero names. Seth Wrafter aged 6

Super

My six year old son, ten year old daughter and I have been listening avidly and literally laughing aloud on the school run at this fabulous story. It’s so amusing, well written and well performed. There are quite a few references the grown ups will enjoy, a lot of observational humour and many witty asides. All this is wrapped a in a decent story line. Supersedes D. Walliams by miles. Highly recommended.

Fantastic story, entertainingly narrated

I think I enjoyed this book almost as much as my kids did! This was our entertainment for the 30 minute school run each morning and it kept us well entertained. Great storyline, kept the kids engaged throughout. Looking forward to listening to more from these authors.

LOVED IT!!

An amazing story. Murph, Rain shadow, Balloon boy,
Equana and Mary Canary are great. I like that the villain, Nectarr is very random. Welcome to the hive! That's bees you idiot. By almost 9 year old girl.

The Book

This piece of eloquent literature consumed the curiosity that lies inside my soul. The fantasies that cower behind the digital pages reached out into my heart and didn’t let go. All of the characters jumped out from their prisons and ran far over the hills away from the cage they had been locked up in for such a long time. Overall this book had all i wanted. This is inevitably the greatest audiobook ever recorded
