The newest installment in an early middle grade series about a weird town with silly goings-on will delight young readers

By: PRLog

PORTLAND, Ore. - March 3, 2024 - PRLog -- The quirky citizens from Slacksville are back in another sidesplitting adventure in the well-received early middle-grade illustrated series from author K. Peach, Tales From Slacksville. In Slacksville's Worst Superheroes, when a brazen thief has the town's top cop stumped, he gets disastrous unwelcome help from a few villagers wanting to make a name for themselves.

Following two praised installments that reviewers called "extremely imaginative" and "refreshingly witty," the third book in this hilarious series follows Officer Jon Cop as he attempts to nab the mysterious culprit known as Peep who has been pilfering Slacksville's citizens along with his criminal gang. Interviewed by a TV reporter, Samantha, Officer Cop makes a plea for villagers to be heroes by reporting anything unusual. Instead, Samantha broadcasts a call to action for all "superheroes" to step up, opening the gates for all types of wannabes to come out of the woodwork to flex their…erm…talents.

What ensues is a hilarious display of self-appointed superheroes "helping"—or more accurately not—Slacksville to be safe from pilfering and peril. Whether it's due to "Samsonman" who is no stranger to self-confidence, "Cowman" (who is decidedly not a cowboy), The Mom (using her trusty countdown, of course) or other self-taught amateurs, Officer Cop's patience is running thin. He devises a plan where all the superhero misfits work together, and allowing a true young superhero to shine, to lay a trap for the crime gang and save Slacksville.

Playful line art illustrations complement author K. Peach's clever and humorous writing, together creating an imaginative and amusing story that families and educators of young children will enjoy with the young readers in their lives. Reminiscent of funny favorites including The Adventures of Captain Underpants, the Wayside School series, and My Weird School, the Tales from Slacksville books are available now wherever books are sold.
