Ade is the new kid on Parsons Road. He knows he should make an effort and make some friends but it's not easy when you look different to everyone else.
It's only when Ade sees off some bullies that Dexter, Brian and Shed realize who Ade really is: their new friend, part cyborg, part footballing genius and all hero.
Over the summer, the boys' days are filled with adventure and laughter but the first day of school is not far away and things are about to change forever.
Ade Adepitan is a wheelchair basketball star and Paralympian. He is also a well-known presenter and commentator. Battle of the Cyborg Cat is his first novel for children.
Recommended for readers aged 9-12.
