Every super hero gets his powers from somewhere. The young hero of this book, Rocco, thinks his abilities come from his shock of red hair, and the longer it gets, the stronger he becomes. He even has a posse of super friends with wild hair of their own. Our hero is unstoppable--until the day he's dragged to the super evil villain's lair and robbed of his powers. How will he face his friends? Will he ever regain his super hero-ness? A girl who has been watching all along offers the gang a chance to save the day and get their groove back.

If you’ve ever tuned into an Ultimate Fighting Championship match on TV – and it continues to be one of the fastest growing sports in the US – then you know Bruce. The official “Voice of the Octagon” for the UFC since 1997, Bruce has been an integral part of the world of Mixed Martial Arts as it has grown from grassroots phenomenon to mainstream, multimillion dollar entertainment powerhouse. He’s seen every big personality come and go, and he’s had a front-row seat for every fight—including those that take place out of the ring. Now with IT’S TIME!: My 360-Degree View of the UFC, his very first book, Bruce shows us the league as only he can, telling never-before-told stories about its most famous figures—Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell, B.J. Penn, and Jon ‘Bones’ Jones, among others—revealing details behind its most controversial fights, and giving us a glimpse at the league’s growth from its fledging days to the high-octane, massively successful entertainment industry it is today.
