In this hilarious, new series, four ordinary kids are about to learn that they are on deck. . . to save the world!
Jessica Flem has spent the better part of her life so far reacting allergically to everything - and much of it in her basement where she rules the online game Gang of Greats. She's used to a nose that never stops running, but is not prepared for the mysterious power that shows up around her thirteenth birthday - the ability to transform her mucus-filled tissues into slimy magical helpers. And just in time, too. It turns out there are forces both good and evil who have had their eyes on her and three other "special" kids since their exposure at birth to a mysterious element called reidium. Jess must draw on her full video game knowledge to face the evil Boss and her equally evil henchwoman in their quest for world domination. With her best friend Cliff at her side, and with the stakes ratcheting higher and higher, Jess and her arsenal of mighty. . . well, tissues, must make the world of Dimly, Manitoba, a safe place once again.
In this hilarious new multi-author series, four kids are about to discover what they're really made of. It might not be a superpower, but it sure is almost a superpower!
Each book features an 8-page "origin story" comic strip, illustrated by Britt Wilson, and is penned by an all-star line-up of authors, including Kevin Sylvester (MiNRS and Neil Flambe series) Ted Staunton (Bounced; Seven series), Lesley Livingston (Wondrous Strange; Valiant series) and Richard Scrimger (Zomboy; The Nose from Jupiter).
Kevin Sylvester is an award-winning writer, illustrator, reporter, radio sports host, producer and documentary maker. His books include the MiNRS and Neil Flambé series. Kevin's claims his superpower is that he can take a puck off the head and STILL finish a hockey game. He's also known for his ability to be able to make a last-second dinner from whatever smells reasonably edible in the fridge. And he can instantly turn circles into cats and ice cream cones into dragons. Well, cat and dragon cartoons anyway. He lives in Toronto, Ontario. Visit him online at ...
