Meet the next member of the Almost Epic Squad!

If you could have any superpower, what would you choose? What about being able to turn yourself into what you draw? But what if drawing is not exactly what you’re best at?

Daisy Kildare is starting over at a new school. Sometimes she wishes she could be anywhere else. But when she uses a certain pencil, Daisy finds she becomes whatever she draws. She just needs to harness that power. If only her drawing skills were a little more accurate . . .

Meanwhile, it turns out there are forces both good and evil who have had their eyes on Daisy and three other “special” kids since their exposure at birth to a mysterious element called reidium. When Daisy finds herself drawn into an epic battle on land, sea and sky, she must use all her wits and artistic “talents” to fight the evil mastermind The Boss and her conniving minion, Dr. Bafflegab.

Readers will be riveted to this high-adventure, howlingly funny story that never misses a beat. The other books in this multi-author series are written by Kevin Sylvester (Mucus Mayhem), Ted Staunton (What Blows Up), and Richard Scrimger (Irresistible – available Fall 2019).
