Mighty Small

Publisher: OUP

Review

Max Small has the perfect name, because he's a tiny mouse. But Max is convinced that actually he is a superhero. He just has to discover exactly what his superpower is. But he can't run very fast. He can't jump very high. And the Hamster Gangsters use him for fruit-throwing target practice. Disappointed, Max hangs up his superhero cape and puts his superhero pants back under his trousers Until…the circus comes to town and nobody notices Sam the Strongman bending the bars of the bank to steal sackfuls of gold. Nobody except tiny Max…

A heart-warming adventure in which Max discovers that nobody can stop him doing the right thing, and that is the best superpower of all.
