Introducing Pizazz, a reluctant 9Â½-year-old girl-superhero! A funny, illustrated series with black-and-white illustrations and comic-strip elements.
The first in a super (like, actually, with powers and stuff) NEW series for 7+ readers from the amazingly talented illustrator and author Sophy Henn! Brimming with Sophy’s hilarious signature illustrations, this is the perfect read for fans of Dork Diaries, Tom Gates, Amelia Fang, Wimpy Kid and Dog Man.
“A SPECTACULAR superhero story that fizzes with fun on every page!” – Liz Pichon, author of the bestselling TOM GATES series.
Being a superhero is the best thing ever, right? WRONG!
HELLO! My name isÂ PizazzÂ and I’mÂ aÂ superhero?
You probably think that’s really AWESOME and while itÂ can be,Â it’s also REEEEEEEAAALLLLY annoying.Â
Don’t believe me? Well, I haveÂ to wear the same outfitÂ ALL THE TIME?!Â I’m always dashing off to save the world right in the middle ofÂ funÂ stuff. PlusÂ I have to be the good guy even when I might not want to be. And sometimes I just want to be, well, normal.
You see, it’s not easy being SUPER ?
PS.Â DON’T even ask me about my super “POWER”?
