The Superpower Project
By (author) Paul Bristow
With the help of a wisecracking, steampunk robot, two friends discover that they have inherited some amazing, if unusual, abilities. Computer whiz Megan can fly (mostly sleep-flying, but she’s working on it) while her best friend Cam can (in theory) transform into any animal, but mostly ends up as a were-hamster.Together they must protect the source of their ancestral powers from a wannabe evil mastermind and his gang of industrial transformer robots who’ve disguised themselves as modern art installations on their Greenock estate.It isn’t easy to balance school and epic super-battles, not to mention finding time to search for other super-talents and train with their Mr Miyagi-esque were-tiger coach.Can Megan and Cam beat the bad guy, defeat his robot transformers and become the superheroes they were born to be?Kelpies Prize shortlisted author Paul Bristow creates a hilarious tongue-in-cheek superhero mash up with a dangerous twist!Features a graphic novel-style prologue.
