About the Book

Author: Sophy Henn

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

Price: £6.99


It’s not easy being a superhero when all you want to be is normal.

Pizazz is the first book in a new series from Sophy Henn and is jam-packed with comic strips and black and white illustrations.

Our reluctant protagonist, nine-year-old Pizazz, has just moved to a new town, but it’s tricky to make friends when you have a daft name, have to wear a stupid cape all the time and have a really embarrassing superpower.

Author Henn is a two-time World Book Day illustrator and has been nominated in the past for the Kate Greenaway Medal and Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.

Deftly blending humour and action, this page-turner is excellent for reluctant readers and superhero fanatics alike and features a strong female lead.

For pupils who enjoy their journey into this new world, book two is set to follow next year.
