Determined to be a ‘normal’ kid again, Walter Kettle decides to retire his alter-ego rodent superhero. However, when mad scientist Professor Stinger invents a machine that can hybridise animals – and indeed himself – Walter’s hopes of a peaceful retirement don’t last long.
Walter Kettle is just an ordinary boy until he is bitten on the bottom by a radioactive squirrel. From that moment, whenever he eats a nut, Walter Kettle becomes... Squirrel Boy! With the help of his ferocious elderly neighbour, Mrs Onions, Walter finds himself fighting crime in the hilarious new series for 6-10s about an unlikely and totally ridiculous superhero.
Ilustrated in comics style panels by Cate James, and perfect for reluctant readers. Three titles in the series publishing in 2015. Previously: Squirrel Boy vs the Bogeyman and Squirrel Boy vs the Squirrel Hunter.
