SuperCat vs the Chip Thief (SuperCat Book 1)
on 23 March 2014
James Jones had always wanted an exciting pet – like a wolf or a panther. Instead, on his seventh birthday he received a cat from the rescue centre. Optimistically, James calls his new roly poly pet Tiger, but his cat is more inclined to sleep than have adventures... However, one day, Tiger is underneath James’s bed where he takes a bite of a toxic sock that he finds there and is transformed into SuperCat! Now Tiger intends to rid the world of evil, with James as his trusty sidekick.
Using their “Tigerman” comics for inspiration, James and Tiger are soon embroiled in a mystery to discover why millions of potatoes are being destroyed by a plague of strange grubs. Will they be able to save the day, so Dad can have mash with his bangers and roast potatoes on Sunday? This is a really fun book. At just over 200 pages, it is aimed at more confident readers (approx 8+ depending on ability), but there are lots of black and white illustrations to help break up the text. Ideal for children moving on from first chapter books to something a little more demanding, it has a great, fast-moving adventure and, of course, a baddie for our superhero to fight. The next book in the series is “SuperCat vs the Party Pooper."
