While there’s no doubt that Jo Schmo will eventually bring Numb Skull to justice, there’s enough hilarity and unexpectedness in the zany, quick jokes to keep readers guessing how.

Synopsis

Fourth-grade superhero Jo Schmo doesn’t know that a crime wave is about to hit her city. She’s too busy learning new superhero skills, like shape-shifting. Only it doesn’t seem to be going very well: what bad guy is scared of a superhero that looks like a frizzy-haired teacher? But Jo and her loyal doggy sidekick, Raymond, know they have to stop the villainous Numb Skull before the crime wave builds into full-on crime tsunami. And if that means Jo has to risk shape-shifting into a freckled monster, then that’s just what she’ll do!
