Electrigirl and the Invisible Thieves

by Jo Cotterill

Illustrated by Cathy Brett

Oxford University Press




Part book, part comic… but one electrifying superhero adventure! Holly Sparkes returns to Blue Haven after her summer holiday to find some strange goings on. Weird green slime is oozing out of the ground, there’s been a spate of mysterious robberies and, worst of all, she’s losing control of her electrifying superpowers. If she could only stop blowing things up, she might just be able to save the day . . . again!

A great read for both boys and girls, with fast- paced and exciting plots,

this is perfect for comic- book and superhero fans.

Jo Cotterill has been writing stories and songs since she could hold a pencil. Growing up in Oxfordshire, she took out as many books as possible from the library each week and drew pictures on her bedroom walls. She can resist buying almost anything except books. Successful careers in acting and teaching were fun but nothing is as great as seeing your name on the cover of a book or enthusing kids about stories. Jo has published over twenty books and has far too many ideas for the number of hours available to write them. She lives in north Oxford, likes making cards and cakes, and believes passionately that there should be more female superheroes.
