I can't remember the last time I read a book this funny. It's about a kid (Speedy) who's sidekick to Pumpkin Pete, a superhero who claims to have 'all the powers of a pumpkin.' Poor Speedy has to learn the ropes of being a superhero from a guy who likes to call him his 'little bulletproof shield.' It's a great satire on the whole world of superheroes and makes fun of all the stereotypes. It's a great book whether or not you read comics because it's a funny story that's fun to read and realy moves fast with action and plenty of jokes.

This is one hilarious book! It pokes fun at all the old superhero stereotypes and adds a fresh, new twist to the world of superhero sidekicks. Pumpkin Pete, who has 'all the powers of a pumpkin,' makes life miserable for his young sidekick and the main character, Speedy. It's a great satire that pokes fun at the relationship between hero and sidekick and answers important questions like: 'Do they wear underwear under all that Spandex?' The sidekicks are a disfunctional group/family with members like Spelling Beatrice, Exact Change Kid and Boy in the Plastic Bubble Boy and Boom Boy (who has teh power to blow himself up, but only once). I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard at a book! And the best part is, you don't have to be a fan of superheroes or comic books to get the jokes or like this book. The characters and the story are so funny, anyone will love it!
