The Astounding Broccoli Boy

(4 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

Rory Rooney is unremarkable in almost everything, apart from his capacity to attract the attention of the school bully. But when he suddenly and spectacularly turns green, he becomes a superhero! With an enhanced, 200% brain and an ability to slightly teleport, what other explanation could there be for his greenness?

Rory and two other mysteriously green children are confined to a hospital isolation unit, but they know that they must escape to start the business of righting wrongs and fighting injustice. Featuring a dramatic fall from a 12-storey building, a close encounter with a gorilla and a rather unfortunate accident with a bin lorry, the latest hilarious offering from much-loved author Frank Cottrell Boyce makes for compulsive and hugely appealing reading.
