Is it hard to become a superhero?


But never fear.  Bart King, author of “The Big Book of Boy Stuff”, “The Big Book of Girl Stuff”, not to mention “The Big Book of Gross Stuff”, can answer all your questions. Superhero cover

As Bart explains:

“For starters, you need the perfect superhero name, a secret identity, a cool costume, and a burning desire to fight evil. But where are you going to get all that stuff?

“From The Big Book of Superheroes, naturally! It will teach you everything you need to know—including how to actually GET superpowers. (They’re good for your self-esteem!) The Big Book of Superheroes will teach you how to:

—Defend yourself from preschooler supervillains
—Make your own jetpack
—Battle costume wedgies
—Customize your Secret Lair
—Learn hand-to-hand and foot-to-butt combat

This hilarious book even tells you how to become a supergenius. (We’d explain it here, but you wouldn’t understand–yet!) In these pages, you’ll snicker at superhero humor, snort at the Ten Lamest Superpowers, or just sneeze if you’re allergic to its super awesomeness.


As a child, author Bart King discovered he could punch people into outer space. (Sadly, he lost a lot of friends that way.) Today, Bart is one of the world’s leading superhero experts. And he is giving away two signed copies of his new book. To be eligible, enter a comment below.
