***AUSTRALIAN AUTHOR*** Walter Kettle is just an ordinary boy, until that is, he is bitten on the bottom by a radioactive squirrel. From that moment, whenever he eats a nut, Walter Kettle becomes Squirrel Boy! With the help of his ferocious elderly neighbour, Mrs Onions, Walter finds himself fighting crime in this new series about an unlikely, hilarious and totally ridiculous super-hero. There's an explosion at the town's nuclear power plant. A week later, after eating his mum's nut roast, Walter realises something very strange is happening to him. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, Jeremy Winkle-Mann Grub is picking his nose. When he inserts a finger into his nostril, he accidently inserts a bug (a bug that has recently been living in the armpit of an aforementioned radioactive squirrel), and Jeremy becomes The Bogeyman. When The Bogeyman embarks on a series of thefts, Walter is the only one who can stop him. Following a strict training regime, orchestrated by Mrs Onions, Squirrel Boy is ready to save the town.
