Frankie is not happy. Not only is she stuck at Grandad's for a whole week while her parents swan off to the Arctic, now she's discovered that there's no WiFi anywhere in the house! Also in the house are: Joel - Frankie's annoying nerd brother who spends all his time playing computer games like Elf-Quest and just generally being really super annoying. Grandad - likes gardening down the allotment and cups of tea. Oh and is also the custodian of a secret fantasy realm called Parallelia. When Grandad is kidnapped by a host of gnoblins (no that is not spelt incorrectly) it falls to Frankie and Joel to save the day. Frankie did have big plans to watch YouTube and eat pot noodles that Saturday but she guesses she'll just have to go on an epic mega-dangerous quest instead.

Note: Harry James Luck, Civil War veteran, US Cavalry captain, sometime lawman, gambler and part-time town drunk, resigns his army commission and heads south to the High Plains country of Texas in the hope of settling down to a trouble and conflict free life. He meets the lovely Bonnie Luxford, buys a small but attractive ranch and sees his trail clear ahead and going on forever.

Publisher: Nudged
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: When Murph Cooper rocks up to his new school several weeks into the beginning of term, he can't help but feel a bit out of his depth. And it's not because he's worried about where to sit, and making friends, and fitting in, or not knowing where the loos are. It's because his mum has enrolled him at a school for superheroes by mistake. And unlike his fellow students, who can all control the weather or fly or conjure tiny horses from thin air, Murph has no special abilities whatsoever. But just because you don't have superpowers, it doesn't mean you can't save the day. Let's hope Murph realises that, and quick - because not far away is a great big bad guy who is half man and half wasp, and his mind is abuzz with evil plans.

Note: Murph Cooper and the Super Zeroes are about to face their greatest challenge yet - the general public! The Heroes' Alliance has operated in secret for decades, but that's all set to change. Super-smarmy ubervillain Nicholas Knox has a plan to become the planet's most powerful leader, and he's using the Heroes to do it. He's revealed the existence of Heroes to the world at large, painting them as mad, bad and dangerous to know. With fear and suspicion of Capes growing amongst the public, Heroes are forced underground, making it harder than ever to do their duty and combat evil wherever they find it. And all the while Knox is reaping the rewards of their efforts. Can Kid Normal take down Knox and prove that superheroes aren't the enemy?
