9780060774660: The Extraordinary Adventures of Ordinary Boy, Book 1: The Hero Revealed

In the town of Superopolis, everyone has a superpower. Everyone, that is, except Ordinary Boy. But things are not so super in Superopolis these days with the evil Professor Brain-Drain on the loose! To make matters worse, Ordinary Boy and his friends are thrown into the middle of a baffling mystery. Forget the regular superheroes. In a city where everyone is extraordinary, this just might be a job for . . . Ordinary Boy.

Review:

“As a send-up and a celebration of the comics genre, this packs a wallop.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Readers will zip through it faster than a speeding bullet.” (School Library Journal)

“Not only is Ordinary Boy incredibly funny, he’s extraordinarily smart.” (Argus Leader)

“The Extraordinary Adventures of Ordinary Boy series will appeal to fans of Captain Underpants in search of new adventures.” (ALA Booklist)

About the Author:

William Boniface may or may not exist. Ordinary Boy, after all, tells his own story. Mr. Boniface could simply be a creation of the publisher in order to fulfill the requirement that an author be listed on the cover of this book. Given that possibility, there is no harm in revealing that Mr. Boniface has lent his name to over two dozen far less wordy children's books that were also in need of an author. Unless, of course, he didn't, which would make this entire biography irrelevant.



Stephen Gilpin is the award-winning illustrator of dozens of children's books and has worked for tons of awesome clients. He lives and works with his wife, Angie, in Hiawatha, Kansas.
