Grades 4 & up

Rory is the smallest kid in his class, constantly picked on by the others, especially Tommy-Lee. His teachers and classmates blame Rory for the mishaps, refusing to see what is being done to him. When Rory suddenly turns bright green while on a class trip, he is first blamed for it and then whisked away to a hospital isolation ward. He finds none other than Tommy-Lee in the ward and also green. While the doctor tries to figure out what is going, the two of them sneak out at night. They have decided that the green color gives them super powers. Their adventures across London are hilarious, as they accidentally bring more chaos to an already stricken city. This witty adventure story is highly recommended for grades 4 & up.
