When Mr Patel asks his class what they'd like to be when they grow up, Finn (most famous for getting in trouble and doing stupid things) chooses 'superhero'. With his friend Brain, the two boys make a list of things needed to be a superhero, including superpowers and saving someone's life.

Join the hilarity as the boys' money-making scheme comes unravelled. Look out, world ...here comes Super Finn!

A former copywriter with a degree in English Literature and a Diploma in Creative Advertising, Leonie Agnew now works as a primary school teacher in Auckland. “Growing up,” says Leonie, "we and a lot of other families had a World Vision kid; we used to keep his picture on the fridge. My family went through a stage where we couldn't afford to keep a World Vision child. I was only nine or so, and there was nothing I could do about it. Maybe there's a tiny element of wish fulfilment in inventing a kid who can and will do something about it."
