Fourth Grade Superhero, Jo Schmo, speeds through the streets of San Francisco with her dog Raymond ready to take-on trouble at a moment’s notice. This time around, the nasty Dr. Dastardly, his accomplice Numb Skull, and a band of time-traveling pirates under the direction of their lemonade-loving leader, Pinkbeard are scheming to bring Jo down.

A prison break fueled by exploding macaroni and an (underwear) elastic slingshot are just two of the wacky adventures in store for readers. Lively action, off-beat illustrations, and Jo’s special crime-fighting tricks assure plenty of laughs in this fourth book in the Jo Schmo series.
