MY SUPER WEIRD UNCLE
Ruby's parents are away and she's stuck spending the day with her weird Uncle Dave. Uncle Dave likes to hang out at the mall while wearing a superhero costume. He likes people to call him 'Magnificent Man'. And he wants Ruby to be his sidekick. Can Ruby handle the embarrassment when Uncle Dave takes her on 'Mall Patrol'? Will her friends see her? And what will happen when Uncle Dave turns out to be more 'super' than Ruby ever expected?
