Summer needs to buy a present for her brother’s birthday, but she can’t afford it. Then she sees a poster for the Rockstone Autumn Fair. The first person to receive 100 tokens at the carnival games will win a MyFone 5T! Summer decides to transform into her secret alter ego, The Champ, and use her superpowers to collect a ton of tokens. But her archnemesis, the Book Witch, is determined to find out The Champ’s identity, and sends in an army of life-size werewolf toys to wreak havoc. Can Summer save the day and score the grand prize?

The third volume in Anh Do’s rollicking superhero series is a howl-a-minute page-turner for kids aged seven to twelve. Reluctant readers in particular will enjoy getting their teeth into the snappy action, which is dripping with globs of giddy humour. 

Dave Atze’s black-and-white cartoon illustrations are bite-size bits of fun that add to the readability of the book. As well as breaking up the text, the images help to bring the crazy cast of characters to life for youngsters.

A light and lively story, The Champ vs The Werewolf Warriorz will be gobbled up by Anh Do fans in next to no time. Even those who are new to his unique brand of amusing adventure will soon be eagerly devouring each entertaining page.
