3rd March 2020
Venue: Great Hall, Oundle, PE8 4GH
Time: 1.30pm

(Recommended for Years 3 & 4)

Ever wanted a really cool superpower? Dylan did too, especially since his brother and sister have got really good ones. But when his wish finally comes true, Dylan is MIGHTILY disappointed. For Dylan has become ... Iguana Boy. He can talk to Iguanas ... RUBBISH!
When supervillain Celina Shufflebottom kidnaps all the superheroes in London, Dylan must work out how to use his new team of chatty iguanas to save the day. Dylan's going to have to think outside the box, (the pizza box), if he's going to become the hero he's always dreamed of.

Long listed for the Blue Peter Book Awards 2019 in the Best Story category.

'HILARIOUS and so silly - superheroes, reptiles and pizza ... AWESOME, why didn't I think of that?!' Tom Fletcher

‘This hilarious book is perfect for any reader who has ever wondered who would win in a battle between platypuses and iguanas. Packed full of brilliant, comic-strip illustrations by Rikin Parekh, this energetic, funny story with heart has a similar appeal to Despicable Me, or My Brother is a Superhero.’ BookTrust
