Summary

The third thrilling adventure book from best-selling, award-winning authors Greg James and Chris Smith.

You don't need superpowers to be a hero...or do you?

Despite having no powers, Murph Cooper is part of the best team in the Heroes' Alliance. So when supervillain Magpie declares all-out war, Kid Normal and the Super Zeroes lead the charge.

But Magpie believes that a powerless hero is no hero at all. And he's building a dastardly device to prove it.

When Kid Normal enters the shadow machine, the world will never be the same....

GREAT 👍🤗

I like it but I don’t exactly love it
I still think the firsts one was better(by the way if you want to see my review of kid normal check it out) it was not as good I think it was OTT ( Over The Top) on all the bad guys and going back in time was to much but it’s a great great performance !🥳

Great, great, awesome book

Everyone should listen in the whole wide world. And I loved the bit where they said "we're definitely not going to talk about a rabbit story", and then they talked about a rabbit story.

Best book I have ever read, er... like, listened to. Amazing background, loved the magical time travelling cat. Can we have another Kid Normal story, Mum?

Awesome!

I’ve listened to quite a few audio books but the kid normal series are some of the best. The audio makes such a difference and really enhances the book. Laugh out loud (Alan Rabbit and the hedgehog especially!!) with good drama, kept everyone entertained, adult and child alike. Well done Chris and Greg. We can’t wait for book 4!
