Iguana Boy vs the 30 Second Thief

Publisher: Hodder

Review

Dylan, also known as Iguana Boy, has achieved his greatest dream – to be a real superhero kid and work at the Superhero Collective alongside his brother, Arctic Thunder, and his sister, Millie Monday (her powers only work on a Monday).

He’s even more excited when he – and his crack-squad of iguanas – are put in charge of a whole department, and have a chance to bring a super-speedy time-controlling supervillain to justice! But things are not always as they seem…

This sequel to Iguana Boy Saves the World with a Triple Cheese Pizza brings the same zany, cartoonish humour to a world full of children with the kind of super-powers the X-Men would have had if Spike Milligan had invented them. Parekh’s illustrations throughout add to the story’s atmosphere.

Most importantly, just like the first book, Iguana Boy carries a warm message of acceptance, understanding and making the best of the talents that you have, no matter how small or silly they may seem.
