Heroes in all guises are the theme of the 29th issue Scoop. In 2020 we have discovered that heroes don’t always wear capes: they are just as likely to be your next-door neighbour, grandparent or local shopkeeper as a caped crusader flying through the sky! Through this issue’s fiction you can join a school for superhero sidekicks, and come to the rescue of a pop hero. There are also amazing stories of real-life heroes – people and animals who have overcome danger, prejudice and the frontiers of nature and knowledge to make the world a better place. We meet many inspiring heroes from the world of books and, as usual, there are puzzles, games and book reviews galore.
