Description

When Melvin goes to Las Vegas for the Superhero's Convention, Candace is left in charge of Los Angeles. Between the horrible bullies at school and the devious and sinister Spaz brothers (Major and his brother, Big), Candace has her hands very full. And someone has stolen her cape How will she stop all the bad guys before the city is overrun with crime?

The super-sidekick gets her turn in the spotlight in this fifth hilarious book in the Melvin Beederman series.

Praise For The Fake Cape Caper

Praise for Melvin Beederman: "A fun, flighty caper. Slyly sprinkled with borrowings from superhero tales and packed with kid-pleasing yucks, this copiously and comically illustrated tale is sufficiently full of baloney to fly."
--Publishers Weekly "Trine's fast-paced, humorous new series will capture the hearts of bright new readers."--Jody Fickes Shapiro, Adventures for Kids, Ventura, CA(from summer 2006 Booksense Children's Picks) "Trine and Montijo have given readers an appealing superhero and his trusty assistant. These delightfully entertaining adventure stories are a must-have for most libraries."--School Library Journal
