I was immediately drawn into JOSHUA DREAD, which tells the story of a 12-year-old who just wants to be normal. Which is tough when your parents are two of the world’s most horrible supervillains.

Hilarious and action-packed, this is the kind of book that I think will appeal to (among others!) fans of the PERCY JACKSON series. There are tons of imaginative details: supervillain trade fairs, zombies with a taste for tofu, a mutant ficus (named Micus) with a grudge against Joshua. I loved the way the world was developed. Superheroes and supervillains appear on the covers of celebrity tabloids and kids take a ride in a robot chauffeur-driven hover SUV...

The fast-moving plot and abundance of laugh-out-loud moments made the book hard to put down. JOSHUA DREAD is a fun, original book, and I’m already looking forward to the next in the series.
