Send for a Superhero!

author: Michael Rosen
illustrator: Katharine McEwen

Tune in as a father reads his children a bedtime story about the exploits of two villains, Filth and Vacuum, and their wicked plan to suck all the money out of the banks and cover everything with muck and slime. Who is strong enough to save the world? Not Steel Man, nor Flying Through the Air Very Fast Man, nor even Incredible Big Strong Green Man. It may just be a job for clever young Brad Forty, who transforms himself into . . . Extremely Boring Man! His superpower is making people fall asleep — but will it work on the children listening to this story?

Comic-book action meets picture-book adventure in this exciting and funny outing from beloved author Michael Rosen and illustrator Katharine McEwen.
