This is pretty far-fetched with some lame-brain parents whose actions would have had social services all over them, however!, putting reasonable belief aside it's all good clean fun. Well, muddy, dirty fun LOL. The kids are smarter than the parents, even though they are scientists, but the antics of finding out you are a mud-creature superhero will have kids turning the pages. The art is clear and cartoony, all done in browns. Along with the superpowers of strength, there are themes of bullies, friendship and siblings that make this an entertaining read for all ages.
