Publisher's Summary

Growing up in the shadow of his football-star brother, Chris, Newt Newman has never felt particularly special. When Chris is knocked into a coma, Newt's two best friends decide that taking him out for Halloween is the best way to cheer him up. Using some of Chris's old, oversized clothes, Newt creates his best costume ever - Captain Nobody!

Newt feels so strong and confident in his new getup that he keeps wearing it after Halloween is over. In no time, Newt assumes the role of a hero in a string of exploits that include foiling a robbery and saving a planeload of passengers. But will Captain Nobody be able to save the one person he cares about most?

With Captain Nobody, the acclaimed author of The Big One-Oh, Dean Pitchford, has skillfully crafted a heartfelt blend of action, humor, and family drama.

Wonderful!!

I listen to a lot of audible books with my 4th grade son and we love Dean Pitchford's books! The Big One-Oh, Nickel Bay Nick and Captain Nobody are fabulous, and the author does an amazing job narrating them. This book has a lot of heart and is also incredibly funny and makes you want to keep listening. So good!

It was awesome.

Since am a kid writing this I hope you enjoy it.
It was just like a character I created, named Madly. I really liked this book and have listened and read it so many times, because it is so good.

Great story line that's enhanced with great narrating!

My 9 yr old son hates, hates, hates to have to listen to me read so when I found this book was on audible, I decided to try it out. I had read the book a couple years ago to my other son, who was 9 at the time as well, and we liked it. Well, hearing the author's different voices for each character and the way he told the story made my son actually like being "read to" for the first time ever. We both laughed out loud throughout the book, and he even asked me to rewind it a few times just to hear a funny expression over again. Great, great book!
