Greg James and Chris Smith chat about Kid Normal in Story Explorers!

Listen to the latest episodes below!

Greg James and Chris Smith are BBC Radio 1 DJs who have written their own books!

They’re the joint authors of the Kid Normal series.

We’re with them every day this week in Story Explorers, the podcast that looks at the stories behind your favourite stories.

In the book series, Murph Cooper rocks up to his new school several weeks into the beginning of term and can’t help but feel a bit out of his depth.

And it’s not because he’s worried about where to sit, and making friends, and fitting in, or not knowing where the loos are. It’s because his mum has enrolled him at a school for superheroes by mistake. And unlike his fellow students, who can all control the weather or fly or conjure tiny horses from thin air, Murph has no special abilities whatsoever.

But just because you don’t have superpowers, it doesn’t mean you can’t save the day. Let’s hope Murph realises that, and quick – because not far away is a great big bad guy who is half man and half wasp, and his mind is abuzz with evil plans…

This is a Pixiu production for Fun Kids.
