Imagine a superhero that’s powered by kindness and imagination...

Introducing the EXTRAordinary Marv and his trusty, super-intelligent, perfect crime-fighting robotic sidekick Pixel, in the all new and spectacular superhero series that fizzes and pops with fun and adventure on every page!

⚡️ THINK - all the comic charm of Sophy Henn's Pizazz meets the heart of Tom Percival's Dream Team! ⚡️

When Marv discovers that he's next in a long line of superheroes, a chaotic cascade of evil robots, riotous dinosaurs and a super-villain mastermind quickly ensue. But with such big superhero shoes to fill, can Marv overcome his fears and tap into his newfound superhero skills?

Alex Falase-Koya's short and snappy text, laced throughout with Paula Bowles' lively integrated two-colour illustrations, makes for a super entertaining, energetic and, most importantly, accessible read that will be an immediate hit with anyone who's harbouring a superhero within. Marv is truly the perfect page-turning package that any superhero could wish for.

Here's to more MARV-ellous superhero adventures with Marv filling our bookshelves soon!
