Book Synopsis



Two ordinary objects turned a pair of brothers into superheroes. Now they're banding together with their neighbors to take down the evil Trench once and for all in the final volume of this graphic novel trilogy.

Tuck and Hudson have figured out how to wield the superpowers they got when their mom bought them an ordinary-looking pair of scarves and an umbrella at a yard sale. But Trench, their supervillain archnemesis, is only getting more powerful. Slowly, the brothers have discovered the others in their town who have superpowered objects from that same yard sale. Now Tuck and Hudson, along with their friend Elvira and their squirrel sidekick, Steen, are leading a band of heroes in the fight against Trench. This final volume of the graphic novel adventure series features the heroes' last stand, with plenty of twists and turns along the way.



Review Quotes




Hansen has successfully combined elements of high fantasy and superheroisminto an action-packed blend, but his secret is the middle-grade emotional realism that glows warmly beneath the fireworks, and he brings the relationships and emotional arcs to a satisfying conclusion as well. His accessibly human character design makes it easier for young readers to imagine themselves in the midst of the excitement, while the colors and faces seamlessly graft honest feelings onto larger-than-life deeds.
