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.
