Publisher's Summary

Victor Spoil comes from a long line of famous supervillains, and he's fully expected to join their ranks one day. But to his family's utter disappointment, Victor doesn't have a single bad-guy bone in his body. He won't run with scissors, he always finishes his peas, and he can't stand to be messy. Hopeless!

As a last-ditch effort before they give up and let him be a - gasp! - civilian, Victor's exasperated parents send him to apprentice under a disgraced supervillain called The Smear. This matchup starts off as a complete disaster, but Victor and The Smear eventually find that they have a lot to learn from each other. When the stakes get high as Victor is forced to choose between his mentor and his family morals (or lack thereof)...what will the world's nicest bad guy do?

In this rollicking middle grade adventure, Michael Fry's witty text combines superhero action with classic fish-out-of-water humor.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

What the Critics Say

"In this clever world, Over the Hedge comic-strip author Fry achieves an ideal balance of humor, poignancy, and zippy superhero/bad guy action, punctuated with frequent amusing black and white illustrations." (Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)

"The irreverent humor that middle graders relish will go a long way to capturing their interest. Superhero fans will enjoy this tongue-in-cheek take on the genre." (School Library Journal)
