Hero-Book-CropWhat’s it about?

The story stars a boy called Leo who loves heroes and has always dreamt of becoming one himself. In his imagination he’s a fearsome gladiator, but how can he become a real-life hero?

Whilst Leo’s trying to work it out, he ends up in a spot of trouble and lets everyone down. The boys at school dare him to do something he knows is wrong.

Meanwhile, a brave little dog called Jack Pepper has gone missing and Leo sets off to bring him home safe.

You can check out the book to see if Leo makes it as a real-life hero.

When’s it out?
