Meet Jo Schmo, fourth-grade superhero! With the help of her drooling dog Raymond, her retired sheriff grandpa, and some very special crime fighting tricks like the Russian Toe Hold, she keeps the streets of San Francisco safe from bad guys in this chapter book series for early middle-grade readers.
“I am retiring from my life as a superhero and have enclosed my cape. Use it well. Sincerely, Uncle George.”
Jo Schmo comes from a long line of crime fighters, but she’s just a normal fourth grade girl into boys and skateboards—until her uncle’s cape arrives on her San Francisco doorstep. Time to join the family business! Gramps shows Jo the tricks of the trade, and her dog, Raymond, becomes her slobbery sidekick. Just in time, too. Can Jo stop Dr. Dastardly and his deadly gang of dead dinos? Stay tuned for more adventures of Jo Schmo, complete with hilarious black-and-white illustrations.
