I didn't like the prospect of his power being surrounded by beans and having to fart to fly.

Excellent book about a boy who draws cartoons. He is a sidekick too, an unlikely hero who befriends a bully, takes care of his special needs brother and wins a scholarship.

"hen aspiring comic-book artist Tucker MacBean enters a contest to create a new sidekick for his favorite superhero - Beanboy, whose superpower is his, ahem, "gaseous tendencies" (Booklist) - he's got a lot riding on whether or not he wins. Tucker hopes that stardom might make him more popular, and he wants to give the prize, a college scholarship, to his hardworking but exhausted single mum. Like the Wimpy Kid books, this story is told partly in cartoons and partly with words, but it's less sarcastic than Greg Heffley's diary entries and has a balance of seriousness and humour that fans of realistic, somewhat emotional stories will enjoy."
