You know,

I used to hear a voice that said

Trouble's coming

Better stay in bed

Then I even tried to run away

'Cause I didn't even know

my own strength

I was shocked

No, I couldn't believe

My world rocked

It was news to me

When I looked in the mirror today

I looked back and I heard me say

I gotta own it, breathe it

Live it like I mean it

There's a hero in me

It's all I wanna be

Is someone to rely on

Looks good on TV

Save the day

It's part of the routine

Out of my way

This is a job for me

There's a hero in me

It's all I wanna be

Is someone to rely on

Looks good on TV

Save the day

It's part of the routine

Out of my way

This is a job for me

There's a hero in me, yeah

There's a hero in me

And our next book report is

from Jeffrey Zimmer.


Well, my report is on Neal Morris'

new Tripp Zoome book,

Freeze-Dried Dreams.

All right!

That's cool!

Please tell me this is a joke.

Is this some kind

of a joke, Mr. Zimmer?

Freeze-Dried Dreams isn't due out

until tomorrow.

I know, but my dad is friends

with this guy who works

at this paper factory where they make

the paper that goes in the books.

So, well, here it is.

Well, read on, Mr. Zimmer.

Read on.

It all started at Thor Industries.

Tina was frozen with fear

as the ruthless Rudolpho had her

in his clutches once again.

It appeared as if her only hope,

Agent Tripp Zoome,

was nowhere to be found.

Hey, Rudolpho.

Is it me, or did you actually get uglier?

Tripp Zoome.

Somehow, I knew you'd show up.

Cool evil-dude device, evil dude.

This isn't over, Tripp Zoome!

This isn't over by a long shot.

And once again,

my man T. Zoome motos to safety

and a humongous bash

at his girlfriend's house

while her parents are away

for the weekend.


An insightful and rousing analysis

of what I can only anticipate will be

another modern literary masterpiece

from Neal Morris, who, of course, is the

father of our very own Melissa Morris.

- Tripp rules!

Tripp rules!

Don't forget, read at least one book

over the break. Enjoy your vacation.

Just when I forget how much

you annoy me, you show up again.

Well, like the book jacket says,

I am unstoppable.

More like unbearable.

You just had to write

another one, huh, Dad?

That's right, Zoomers, it's here!

The very latest

in the Tripp Zoome series!

And let me be clear, it's Tripp-tastic!

Oh, brother.

What? I love that line.

You would. It's all about you.

Who're you talking to?

Nobody. I'm just really excited

about tomorrow, you know.

I just can't stop talking about it.

I'm happy for you, honey.

I know you've been looking forward to

this camping trip for a long, long time.

Yeah. You know,

Dad's just been busy with writing

and the Tripp Zoome parades,

and that new ice-cream flavor,

- Triple-Zoome-Crunch.

- Triple-Zoome-Crunch.

It wasn't that bad, actually.

You sure it's okay that I'm going?

Sweetheart, he and I may be divorced,

but he's your father,

and I want you to spend

as much time as you can with him.

Okay. Thanks, Mom.


- Yes!

What do you think?

To be honest,

I voted for the Kevlar cloaking tuxedo,

but they think this will sell more books,

so who am I?

This is autographed, so you have it.

Thank you.

- Come on.

- Come on.

So, did you hear?

Tripp's last book sold

over 200,000 copies.

I mean, can you imagine what this

thing's gonna do? Go through the roof!


Melissa, your daughter?

You might want to ask how she is.

I know how she is.

She's totally psyched

to be going away with her father!

Exactly. Which is why you have to do

everything humanly possible
