Written and Illustrated by Sophy Henn, Published today by Simon and Schuster

Page 11 Sentence…page 11 in this book is a chapter header so I have skipped to page 12 and the best sentence is…”Yes, you did hear that right. My name is Pizazz.”

Three Words to describe this book! Funny, surprising, super!

Recommendation! This book is the first in a series by Uber talented Sophy Henn and is perfect for readers aged 7 and up! Pizazz is a super hero, as are all her family, and they need to balance living normal lives with saving the world! When they move to a new town, Pizazz’s sister fits in immediately while it takes longer for Pizazz to find her feet.

Becoming Eco Monitor for her class is a step in the right direction and her first project is to save the park from becoming a car park. Can she do it by using her super power or by asking her family for help? Without knowing her super power, the reader can imagine all the cool things Pizazz could do!

However, striking the balance between being a normal 9 1/2 year old and a super hero is important and there may be a simple solution to solving this eco concern!

The amazing comic style illustrations make this feel like a superhero epic and the conversational style text is perfect for building the story and feeling a part of Pizazz’s world!

I can highly recommend this newly published delight!
