Product description

Adam Butters is fed up of being ordinary; the adopted kid who lives in a tower block and lives off spaghetti hoops. Adam wants to be superhero. He wants to solve the world’s problems, and make people happy, and be loved by everyone. (Mission one: to cheer up his adoptive mum.) Adam has just found out that before he was adopted, his real mum called him Ace. This makes him feel about sixty feet tall! Now he’s just got to prove to the world that’s what he actually is. One mission at a time…

  • A heartwarming story about the power to be extraordinary
