The Adventures of Long Arm #2: Long Arm vs the Evil Supply Teacher
Think school is deadly boring? It’s also plain old deadly in this superhero caper! Born in a toilet U-bend, Long Arm has a talent for saving the day. But his human alter-ego, Ricky Mitre, is always in trouble. His grumpy (and very trumpy) teacher, Mr Pinkerton, hates him. So when a cool new supply teacher joins the school, Ricky’s problems are solved! Or are they? There’s more to this guy than meets the eye. Has Long-Arm met his match? Or are we just pulling your arm – sorry, leg?
