|Who can protect Blootinville from a
giant monster the size of a bus and
shaped like a loaf of bread? This is a
job for the Cupcaked Crusader. Our
unlikely hero is also known as Horace
Splattly. When Horace’s sister Melody
tests her cupcakes on Horace, amazing
things happen. Horace is transformed
from the shortest kid in his fourth
grade class to a flying, fire-breathing
superhero. And it is up to the
Cupcaked Crusader to save the school
principal from the giant monster on the
playground before his superhero powers
wear off. Will he be able to do it?
This action-packed adventure will leave
you looking a bit more closely at that
cupcake you are having for dessert.
