Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dave Sanchez is an average boy with an after-school job and a pet gecko named Sticky. All very normal--until the day Sticky talks. Sticky tells Dave a wild tale of a former life of crime, searching for Aztec gold with a treasure hunter named Damien Black, and of a magical Aztec wristband with shiny gold power ingots that will give the wearer super powers. Dave doesn't believe a word--until Sticky shows him the wristband. But while Sticky managed to escape with the wristband, Damien Black has the power ingots. So the lizard and treasure hunter each have something the other wants . . . very badly.

Filled with outrageous adventures, over-the-top characters, snappy-funny dialogue, and a tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek narration, this new series is sure to be a hit with young superheros everywhere.

Wendelin Van Draanen spent many years as a teacher before devoting herself to writing full-time. She lives in Central California.

Synopsis:

The evil treasure hunter Damien Black has just robbed the local bank, and Dave Sanchez and Sticky are on his trail. But Damien really wants Dave's magical wristband with its Invisibility Ingot--and he's got a dastardly plan to get it. Illustrations.
