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.

From the Hardcover edition.

Could you choose between a superpower and a friend?

The evil treasure hunter Damien Black needs some quick cash—so he robs the local bank. But Damien Black didnt figure Dave Sanchez into his plan. Daves been itching to try out the Invisibility Ingot in his magical wrist band, and heres the perfect opportunity to make like a superhero! So Dave and Sticky set off after the robber, determined to retrieve the banks money. The Black mansion is a house of hysterical horrors, but somehow he and Sticky manage to navigate the maze and escape with the cash. Asombroso! Dave thinks hes home free, but Damien Black isnt one to give up easily—more than the cash, he wants Daves wrist band, and hes got a dastardly devious plan that even an invisible boy wont be able to slip out of.

From the Hardcover edition.
