A superhero the size of a bag of puppy chow? Yes, it's ten-year-old Horace Splattly, victim of his brilliant sister's experiments, empowered by her chemically altered cupcakes to fly through their hometown of Blootinville, breathing fire and righting wrongs.

With ideas as large as he is short, Horace Splattly is determined to vanquish evil, if he can find any. An overgrown, man-eating class pet proves a worthy opponent for the boy in purple in this first installment of an exciting and seriously silly chapter-book series, sure to appeal to the post-Captain Underpants crowd.

Illustrated by Barry Gott
