Sly, the snake, has been working on a magic potion. When a mosquito flies through the smoke, he begins to transfer super powers to all those he bites. After being bitten, Sly realizes he has the power to take over the city and heads straight for mayor’s office.

Meanwhile, the mosquito also bites four animals living at the pet shop. Kitty the cat, Grace the guinea pig, Petruchio the puppy, and Carmine the chameleon all race to the mayor’s office to try to save the city. Each has a unique new super power that will help them defeat Sly.

Pet Shop Heroes blends action, science, and humor into a fun story kids will enjoy. Move over Superman – the Pet Shop Heroes are ready to save the world!
