Many children think their step-parents are super-villains

. . . but what if they really were?

10-year-old Billy’s mum has just re-married, and his new step-dad

Phil is smarmy and try-hard . . . Even if he is super rich.

On top of that, Billy – and his best-friend Viv –

are so unpopular at school, only the IT Club rank below them

in the school food-chain. And, the school bully keeps throwing bins

at Billy’s head.

So, when Billy discovers his step-dad is a super-villain

with an evil plan to destroy the entire world, it is the perfect

excuse to break Phil and his mum up. But gathering evidence about

a super-villain is harder than it looks, and when Billy accidentally

becomes ‘Bin Boy’ –

a superhero sensation – things become a whole lot more


Suddenly the fate of the global population is on Bin Boy’s

shoulders. Can he save his family and the entire world?!

A story of friendship, pizza, fizzy drinks, a super-hacker,

a volcano secret-lair, excellent technological wonderment,

a platinum-toothed crocodile . . . And a superhero sensation!

A brand-new superhero is in town and perfect for readers aged


Told with heart and tonnes of homour, great for fans of David

Solomons, Kid Normal and Despicable Me.

Brought to life by Emma McCann, illustrator

– this package will delight readers.
