It's not often that you come across a children's book with a voice as strong as Bishop's unique spin on the super kids genre. His quippy conversational style of writing is perfect for parents reading to their younger kids and smart enough to keep young readers interested on their own. Providing the perfect sidekick to Bishop's text is Rikin Parekh's fun and quirky illustrations. One part Quentin Blake and one part Dr Seuss, Parkeh's depictions of Bishop's crazy world are perfectly in tune with the voice and feel of story and really help bring the story of Iguana Boy to life. Of all the child superheroes on the bookshelf, if I was a cat stuck up a tree I'd definitely want Dylan (sorry, Iguana Boy) to rescue me. (Starburst Magazine)
Very funny and slightly bonkers, action packed story. Great for newly developing readers. (Primary Times)
This...is bound to be popular with lovers of humorous stories (Armadillo Magazine)
Crazy illustrations by Rikin Parekh are the perfect complement to the story. The chatty writing style makes this book great to read aloud, so parents have a good excuse to share the fun! (Parents in Touch)
This hilarious book is perfect for any reader who has ever wondered who would win in a battle between platypuses and iguanas. Packed full of brilliant, comic-strip illustrations by Rikin Parekh, this energetic, funny story with heart has a similar appeal to Despicable Me, or My Brother is a Superhero. (BookTrust)
A brilliant book best summed up by its brilliant title. (The School Run)
One boy. One disappointing superpower. Can Dylan tame a bunch of hyper iguanas and come up with a masterful plan to save the WORLD? Yeah, probably ... but he's going to need a MASSIVE cheese pizza. Perfect for fans of Tom Gates, Future Ratboy and My Brother is a Superhero.See all Product description
From the Publisher
Read the second book in the series
If they loved Iguana Boy Saves the World With a Triple Cheese Pizza, then they'll love book two in the Iguana Boy series, Iguana Boy Vs. The 30 Second Thief.
One Boy. One Disappointing Superpower
Dylan can talk to iguanas. As superpowers go it's not the most exciting. It's not like he can create a hurricane with his fingertips or shoot lasers from his eyes. Now that really would be a cool superpower.
But maybe Dylan and his iguanas can save the day, if they're lucky!
Your child will love this series if they love.

It's a bit crazy, but my son loved it. It took me a couple of weeks to read at bedtimes, but he would always moan at the end of a chapter, wanting to keep going. Always a good sign.
In a family with two superhero siblings already, it is third child Dylan who desperately craves superpowers, to help mankind and generally be noble and philanthropic. His brother and sister don't believe it will ever happen. But one day... Dylan finds his power!!! He can.... talk to IGUANAS?!
How Dylan and some new friends attempt to save the world from a devious young super-villain is a very humorous journey, with comic panels, lots of silly goings-on, and yes - pizza.
The story was not straightforward to read aloud, with back and forth from Dylan's story to comic strips of superheroes in action (not great for a teacher reading aloud to a class, for example), but one-on-one at bedtime it was no problem. Lots of chance for silly voices (note: FOUR iguana voices needed!).
My son will probably manage this complexity of text by himself in a couple of years, but his understanding at seven is adequate to cope with this as a listener. I would say the recommended age range would be 7-12.
We would definitely read a sequel.
