Murph Cooper has a problem. His new school is top secret, and super weird.

When Murph ends up in a school for young superheroes – sorry – Capes, he finds himself thrush into a world of the strange capabilities and students who can:

fly while holding umbrellas, control storms, or summon 2 tiny horses, laser beam eyes, control(explode) televisions… for some examples.

Murph is dealing with a home life that’s been moved about a lot over the past few years and struggling to make friends at his ever-changing school situation, but when he finally makes friends at a school for superheroes, Murph’s life seems to be on the up.

Only problem is there’s a wasp based villain across town who’s plotting domination over the world and picnics.

Greg James and Chris Smith are a goofy pair on the radio and their humour comes through on the pages of Kid Normal. The concept, the writing style, it really packs in the laughter in the chapters.

A fun concept, well-executed, and with a ton of giggles. I will be looking for the rest of the books in the series to follow these great characters.
