It’s hard to look after yourself in the playground when you’re different. Set in 1970s New Zealand. This is a story about Andy, a gutsy eight year-old boy who lives in a make-believe superhero world where his imagination allows him to perform extraordinary physical feats, to deal with playground bullies.  But when Andy gets in trouble with the headmaster, he realises that to save himself and his only friend Mary, he must face up to the real world.
