Bin Boy

Bin Boy

Many children think their step-parents are super-villains . . . but what if they really were?

10-year-old Billy’s mum has just re-married, and his new step-dad Phil is smarmy and try-hard… Even if he is super rich. On top of that, Billy – and his best-friend Viv – are so unpopular at school, only the IT Club rank below them in the school food-chain. And, the school bully keeps throwing bins at Billy’s head.

So, when Billy discovers his step-dad is a super-villain with an evil plan to destroy the entire world, it is the perfect excuse to break Phil and his mum up. But gathering evidence about a super-villain is harder than it looks, and when Billy accidentally becomes ‘Bin Boy’ – a superhero sensation – things become a whole lot more complicated.

Suddenly the fate of the global population is on Bin Boy’s shoulders. Can he save his family and the entire world?!

A story of friendship, pizza, fizzy drinks, a super-hacker, a volcano secret-lair, excellent technological wonderment, a platinum-toothed crocodile… And a superhero sensation!
