"Superkitty vs Mousezilla" by Hannah Whitty and Paula Bowles (Simon and Schuster Children's Books)

Stand by for action as two unlikely allies team up for an awesome and pacy picture book story!

"Superkitty vs Mousezilla" might sound like a titanic kaiju movie but this little book is about something we could all do with learning about - how to work together to achieve awesomeness!

It's the day of the picnic party and the residents of Big City are busy making preparations, when disaster strikes!

Mr Fizz's pop shop has run dry, there's not a single bottle of Dandelion and Burdock on the shelves, but there's worse news, Mrs Appleton's bakery has also run out of gorgeous tasty comestibles! CAT-ASTROPHE!

But what's that in the sky? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No wait, it's a mask-wearing kitty and her band of amazing animal superheroes, ready to save the day, hooray!

They're hot on the trail of the culprit - but with a twist in the tale, the miscreant might not be an evil genius after all! 

Sum this book up in a sentence: Colourful, zappy and full of awesomeness, it's the sort of picture book that could keep a bunch of kids absolutely enchanted from first page to last. 

"Superkitty vs Mousezilla" by Hannah Whitty and Paula Bowles is out on 19th March 2020, published by Simon and Schuster Children's Books (kindly supplied for review).
