    By Kevin Stevens

    Quick Overview

    Meet the Powers: the not-so-super superheroes. Despite their amazing talents, the Powers are not very good at controlling them. When we first meet Ted Power, his head is on fire, and Clare Power summons a massive downpour of rain instead of a light shower to put him out. JP, the wonderful flying boy, is really better at crashing into things than anything else, and Suzie Power has just had enough of the whole lot of them. A perfectly-paced adventure story featuring a colourful and genuinely funny family, The Powers will entertain and charm young readers.

    'So they gave back. Or tried to. True, they had been suspended by the association. But they lived in Ireland, where superhero laws were fuzzy, to say the least. Or ignored.'

    Poor Suzie – Dad has set the kitchen on fire again and Mum has turned the rain on indoors to douse the flames. JP has flown straight into a wall, and the dog, Pucker, is a whirlwind of paws and ears and noisy howls. 


    Kevin Stevens has written grown-up books about bank robbers and jazz musicians but he also likes to write books for kids and teens. He helped the superheroes at Little Island create the Nightmare Club books for younger children and then went on to write his own books for children: The Powers and its companion book Pucker Power. Pucker is his favourite character, even though he weed on Kevin’s leg once, thinking it was a lamp-post. His first book for teenagers was This Ain’t No Video Game, Kid!, followed by A Lonely Note, winner of an IBBY Honour Award. Both published by Little Island, of course.
