Wesley Wombat really wanted to be a superhero.

'If only I had superpowers like all my friends!' he thought longingly.

All of Wesley's friends can do special things: the kangaroo can jump really high, the frilled lizard can make itself look big and scary, the ant can lift up things bigger than itself and the eagle can see things miles away … children will love lifting the flaps to reveal Wesley's disastrous attempts to copy his friends!

Feeling despondent, Wesley sets off to a bush birthday party, only to find his friends trapped in a burning shed. Then finally he discovers his very own superpowers – just in time!
