AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Philip has spent his whole life at school either being invisible or being called stupid. He's used to being the loner, the odd one out, the boy who lives with his nan.

So when Philip's class is given a school assignment to write about heroes and villains, the project causes conflict in the classroom as everyone weighs in on the debate.

For the first time, Philip has the opportunity to shine in school but can he convince the class that being different is not necessarily a bad thing and that heroes have many disguises?' (Publisher's blurb)
