Cyborg Cat and the Night Spider

Publisher: Piccadilly Press

Ade and his friends are the Parsons Road Gang – football-loving, funny and always up for a challenge. But when Ade starts receiving weird, threatening messages from graffiti sprayed by someone with the mysterious name of Night Spider, no one can work out what's going on.

All they know is that Ade is in danger. Meanwhile, Ade's leg, weakened by polio as a child, starts letting him down, and it looks as if he is going to have to use a wheelchair as well. The only person more worried about it than Ade is his dad – but things are not always as bad as they seem.

This valuable book by a Paralympian puts a differently abled child at the heart of the story. Ade is a bright, active, positive, exciting character who loves teasing his friends and drives a thrilling plot that any reader will get swept up in.

The book shows not only that there's no reason that a superhero can't use a wheelchair, but also that the wheelchair can make their superpowers even greater! Cyborg Cat is part of a series that deserves a wide audience.
