Author’s Comments

“In this Superkid novel, which was originally the final one, I just had to bring back Mashela, my favorite villian. And nothing seemed more appropriate than having she and Missy duke it out in a beauty contest, with Paul in the flanks.” – Chris


  • This was actually the second novel #8 I wrote. The first one, which I finished, we put aside because it was connected to close to the original #6 and #7 I wrote, that we put on hold. Now the first novel #8 is #11.
  • Out of all the Superkid books, I considered the second my best novel for all the characters. That’s why I wanted to bring Missy back into her hometown again with her parents, Gran, Fiffer and others.
  • Check out the chapter titles in this one. Each one is the title of a traditional Christmas song.
  • Paul and Rapper are watching a cartoon in chapter 1: “Zoey and Zuzu.” Those were the names of the cats my wife and I found right after we were married.
