Description

Archie comes back from his summer away to find that he is the only kid in Grade 6 who has not grown bigger. Even his best friends Alfie and Shamini have gotten taller — and Shamini has developed in other ways, too. Archie knows that if only he can be more like the heroes of his favourite comic books, TV shows and video games, he'll be able to keep the older boys from teasing Shamini about her newly developed body — and maybe she'll keep her promise to go to the first school dance with him. From practicing the ninja crawl to bulking up with exercise and a high-protein diet, how can Archie fail?

Editorial Reviews

"Superhero Ninja Wrestling Star is a fast, compelling read with an engaging plot, realistic dialogue, humorous situations and a solid encouraging resolution about being your own person and not trying to live up to the precepts of others."

CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"The humorous antics associated with Archie's quest should help young readers both laugh and cope with their own struggles. The novel is fast-paced and when read aloud should promote discussion regarding bullying, friendship and acceptance. It should be a popular addition to a school or classroom library collection."
