Top Banana is a world away from this authors previous books. It is a light slightly comedic gentle look at Steve's life from under his mother's thumb via becoming a superhero (of what, we're not sure) ending up a nice young man.
I din't find this a particularly laugh out loud story. It was more a gently humorous tale. I read it more with a smile on my face than a chortle on my chops.
I think I preferred the story early on when Steve was working in the grocers rather than when he started coming into his own later on.
The words I use to describe this are gentle and nice. I felt content after finishing this.
