Description of this Book

Happy birthday, Stanly. We hope you like your present... Cynical, solitary Stanly Bird is a fairly typical teenager - unless you count the fact that his best friend is a talking beagle named Daryl, and that he gained the powers of flight and telekinesis when he turned sixteen. Unfortunately, his rural Welsh home town is not exactly crying out for its very own superhero. London is calling - but what Stanly finds there is a good deal weirder and more terrifying than anything he could have imagined. Perhaps he should have stayed in Wales ...Winner of the Dylan Thomas Prize for new writers.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Winner of Dylan Thomas Prize 2010 (UK)
NZ Review Into what seems to be a very real and familiar world, Stefan Mohamed introduces a 16-year-old superhero and his even more remarkable dog. All kinds of crazy, amorous and criminal adventures ensue, but our author's vivid imagination, story-telling power, humour and mastery of punchy dialogue ensure that we eagerly hang on throughout this refreshingly original novel. -- Professor Peter Stead I raced through it like I was reading a comic book. -- Cerys Matthews Stefan Mohamed really stands out from the crowd - a delightfully funny, surreal and original new voice with a great storytelling gift. -- Justin Kerrigan
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
