Review: Accidentally Awesome!

“I’m always in the right place at the right time. At least, that’s what everyone keeps telling me.”

Jackson Payne is clumsy…really, really, really clumsy! Every time Jackson is clumsy, awesome things happen and he becomes an accidental hero helping people out of all sorts of trouble. But when Jackson decides that he doesn’t want to be a hero by fluke anymore, he goes about changing himself, only to find himself in real trouble.

The dynamic duo of Adam Wallace and James Hart bring a lot of humour, wit, silliness and a great message for children. Complete with food fights, bank robbers and a giant cupcake wearing sunglasses, Accidentally Awesome encourages children to ‘just be yourself’.

Inspired by shows such as Get Smart, Inspector Gadget and The Pink Panther, Accidentally Awesome is the first junior fiction chapter book in what is a planned 12 book series.

Cleverly written by Wallace and full of humour, with a touch of the ridiculous, Accidentally Awesome will particularly appeal to boys.  With larger text, action-packed funny stories and illustrations by James Hart, Accidentally Awesome is sure to engage any young reader, and is highly recommended for everyone who simply enjoys a laugh.
