For Joshua Dread, middle school is proving to be, well, awkward. Not only do bullies pick on him, but do you see those supervillains over there trying to flood the world? The ones that everyone, including his best friend Milton, are rooting for Captain Justice to take down? They're the Dread Duo, and they just happen to be his parents.

As if trying to hide his identity wasn't hard enough, Joshua has started leaving a trail of exploding pencils and scorched handprints in his wake and only Sophie, the new girl in town with a mysterious past, seems unsurprised. When a violent attack at the Vile Fair makes it clear someone is abducting supervillains and that his parents may very well be next, Joshua must enlist both Sophie and Milton's help to save them.

    It was very good because Joshua was brave and kept trying to find his parents that have been teleported by smoke creatures. It was exciting because I needed to know if that was true or not. I couldn't...

    This would be a really great book for that awkward in between age for boys, when they start to think maybe reading isn't cool. ...

  • Nancy Scordino

    I checked this out to see what my grandson (8) was reading so intently in the background during a FaceTime call. It is entertaining and engaging, and just silly enough to keep a child motivated to rea...

    I would recommend this book to a fourth or third grader because it is about super heroes and super villains and it is not to long. This book is about a boy named Joshua hes parents are supper villains...
