- His brother (who is in hospital)
- Their very panicked parents
- Unwanted attention from the school bully
- The fact that he’s started turning into animals !
Even though every kid wants a superhero power, Charlie isn’t keen on turning into a pigeon in the middle of the school play. But what happens if he does ? Will he get sent away for Science to deal with ? Will his parents crack under the extra stress ? With the help of his three best friends, Charlie needs to find a way of dealing with his crazy new power – and fast !
