Magic Ink

Twelve-year-old Stewart Penders is crazy about comics and loves to draw his own, especially when he’s telling the story of his fantasy alter ego, Stupendous Man. When Stew’s grandad – a legendary comic book artist – dies, he leaves his home and its contents to Stew and his family. But as Stew soon finds out, the house comes with a few surprise features! When the family move in, they are greeted by a pig wearing a top hat, running amok through the house! And if that wasn’t weird enough, Stew finds a mysterious pot of ink in the attic, next to a discarded comic strip featuring the very same pig. When Stew starts drawing with the ink, his artwork springs magically into life! Suddenly, the possibilities for his creativity are endless. Who knows what adventures are on the way for Stew and his good friend, Stupendous Man?
