about this item

After years of watching superhero movies, reading comics and fantasizing about being a crime-fighter, he decides to become one. First of all he needs a superhero name, a superhero costume and some superpowers. Then he needs to find some crime to fight. His diary chronicles his valiant attempts to make the world a better place and, armed with only plastic handcuffs and stink bombs, and stuck with his dependable but incompetent sidekick, Henry, Josh becomes embroiled in a dark world of crime, armed gangs and people illegally parking in disabled spaces. This is the story of the everyday dilemmas of superheroes in the real world through the hilarious diary of a 15-year-old boy. It asks the big questions, such as: Why would someone want to fight crime? Wouldn’t they get in the way of police (and school) work? Why would a tight-fitting Lycra costume help? Will Josh rise to the challenge and become a genuine hero? Or will he go home and hide under his bed?
