Synopsis of Text:

One of The Observer's Best Children's Books of 2018!  'It's a great story for everyone, especially those not used to seeing themselves centre-stage'- The Guardian 

From the author of Bumblebear, comes a new heroine for our times. Introducing: Billy! Whilst on a lovely walk in the woods, Billy and her trusty side-kick Fatcat hear a terrible rumble… a terrible rumble coming from a Terrible Beast… He’s making a Terrible Soup out of all of Billy and Fatcat’s friends!

 

Synopsis of Text:

It's time for bed and Dad is reading Emily and little Elmer a story... "Danger! Filth and Vacuum, The Terrible Two, are trying to destroy the world!" Who will save the day? Steel Man isn't strong enough; Flying-Through-the-Air-Very-Fast-Man isn't fast enough and Incredibly-Big-Strong-Green-Man isn't big, strong and green enough.

Who can help? Clever young Brad 40 has a brilliant idea: he calls on a most unlikely superhero: Incredibly Boring Man, who sends the villains - and everyone else - to sleep! Filth and Vacuum are captured by the army, Brad is a hero, and Dad thinks Emily and Elmer have fallen asleep too. But he's wrong...
