Crazy illustrations by Rikin Parekh are the perfect complement to the story. The chatty writing style makes this book great to read aloud, so parents have a good excuse to share the fun!
It's not often that you come across a children's book with a voice as strong as Bishop's unique spin on the super kids genre. His quippy conversational style of writing is perfect for parents reading to their younger kids and smart enough to keep young readers interested on their own. Providing the perfect sidekick to Bishop's text is Rikin Parekh's fun and quirky illustrations. One part Quentin Blake and one part Dr Seuss, Parkeh's depictions of Bishop's crazy world are perfectly in tune with the voice and feel of story and really help bring the story of Iguana Boy to life. Of all the child superheroes on the bookshelf, if I was a cat stuck up a tree I'd definitely want Dylan (sorry, Iguana Boy) to rescue me.
This hilarious book is perfect for any reader who has ever wondered who would win in a battle between platypuses and iguanas. Packed full of brilliant, comic-strip illustrations by Rikin Parekh, this energetic, funny story with heart has a similar appeal to Despicable Me, or My Brother is a Superhero.

Very funny and slightly bonkers, action packed story. Great for newly developing readers.
A brilliant book best summed up by its brilliant title.
