Not all heroes have superpowers.

Don't believe us? Well, Murph Cooper is living proof.

Since becoming Kid Normal, he and the Super Zeroes have been catching baddies all over the place.

But being a hero is about to get a whole lot harder ....

Far away in a top-secret prison, the world's most feared supervillain has just broken a thirty-year silence.

His first words?


Ah, another thrilling and exciting adventure with the Super Zeroes! Murph and his friends are in the second year and have been granted by Mr. Souperman to be in A Stream class under Mr. Flash's wing but Mr. Flash disagree with that because, for him, the Super Zeroes are a bunch of losers that's not up to his own standard of the students his personal choose. No matter what, the Super Zeroes are in A Stream class although been looking down from their class.

Despite that, Murph and his friends (the Super Zeroes) has made a wonderful history of being the youngest team to work with Heroes' Alliance. As a matter of fact, they have succeeded in solve quite numbers of cases. By that, there are now back in a next mission to fight the most feared supervillain - Magpie - which has a capability to steal other superpowers from the superheroes.

The story itself has really stolen my attention to sit and stick to my reading not wanting to stop although I do have to stop to eat, drink, sleep and do my job but hey, it's really enjoyable and fun reading. Kid Normal and the Rogue Heroes is certainly a page-turner!

I truly love the way both of the authors' writing the book. They made it fun, humorously also put a suspense element in the story plot. Even more, the authors' details on each of the characters, of their superpowers are really well written. Also, the illustrations in the book were incredible. That being said, I am looking forward to the authors next book.

I love all the characters especially Murph, although he has no capability (or superpowers as you say so), he shows the bravery act even in the most intense situation and came up with a plan right away which shows that either you have superpowers or not is not what you should worry about, the most important thing is you are confident with what you do and that's what it counts.

All in all, Kid Normal and The Rogue Heroes are very interesting reading and the adventure that bring us with all the characters felt so amazing. This second book has more fun, more action that give us more satisfaction. I, hereby going to steal your 'powers' (read: time) to make this book as your priority to read. okay, joke but it's true, do buy and read this book to your children or sisters or brothers or even us adults would be going to enjoy this beautifully written book.
