The Invicibles Pt2. Short Circuit by Peter Millett, illus. Myles Lawford.

Short circuitThe Invicibles Pt2. Short Circuit by Peter Millett, illus. Myles Lawford. Pub. Scholastic, 2019.

Book 2 in this series about five super charged kids who play for the same rugby team. They where hit by lightning which gave them super powers but only when they connect together and only for 80 minutes the same time it takes to play a game of rugby.

This last part was questioned by a boy in a class I was talking to about this book. He rightly pointed out that there is 10 minutes for half time and did they lose their powers during this time? What do you think?

Well a short circuit has reduced all Invincibles to inch high and they are targets of wetas and magpies. Tricky Ricky has a plan to steel the gold medals of the All Greats World Cup medals and the Invincibles have to stop him

See if they can but you might have to go down the toilet to follow them.

Lots of laughs with ‘O for awesome” getting a good run and “winning ugly” getting in there too. Illustrations are a star again, check out the magpies.

For reluctant readers of intermediate and primary school level. A good laugh. Part 1 is also review elsewhere on this blog.
