The Secret Superhero by Justin D’ath
The Lost World Circus holds some of the world’s lost animals. Other animals have been wiped out by rat flu. The rat cops, which are supposed to be only killing rats, are instead destroying animals with rat flu. Officer Katt, the meanest rat cop of all, is plotting an evil plan to try to close down the Lost World Circus and with it the last animals in the world. Meanwhile, Colt is performing all sorts of amazing acts. To hide who he really is, he and his friend Birdy have come up with the silliest but most effective disguise of all - a clown. Will ‘Superclown’ and his trusty sidekick ‘Clowngirl’ save the last animals on earth?
The main characters are Colt (aka Superclown) and Birdy (aka Clowngirl). Colt is a thirteen year old boy with snowy blonde hair. He has recently discovered that he is incredibly strong. The only problem with that is that after any of his superhuman acts, he faints. The only antidote is a lot of food. Colt met Birdy in The Last Elephant, the first book of this breath-taking series. Birdy is a Flying Flynn, one of the human acts in the circus and she can do amazing tricks. When she is hired to be Superclown’s sidekick, her abilities need to kick in…
I really liked Secret Superhero. It is so clearly explained I feel like I was in the book, acting out every single scene!
If you are an animal lover, this is the right book for you!
