About this deal

It should have been Luke - superhero expert and comic-lover - who was given superpowers and instructed to save two universes. Be careful, though - there's a danger of actual tears and serious stomach-hurt from doubling-over with laughter. If so you should try it because one of the characters will tell you how they lost a one in a lifetime opportunity. The anti-climactic thing is that the brother that doesn't like super heros becomes one and that makes me laugh. Luke is massively annoyed about this, but when Zack is kidnapped by his arch-nemesis, Luke and his friends have only five days to find him and save the world.

David Solomons is the best-selling author of the My Brother is a Superhero books, the first of which won the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2016 and the British Book Industry Awards Children's Book of the Year 2016. That even the smallest of things (like going off to have a wee) could make you lose the chance of fame and living with the richest of people.It involves another boy obsessed with superpowers: Luke, who missed the chance to acquire them because he nipped out for a wee. What it reminds me most of is the TV show 'The Flash' when Wally West is jealous of Jessie Quick when she gets the power of speed and he doesn'. It's also the perfect next step for readers who may have loved the Baby Aliens series and want to up their reading game. The two are going to have to team up if they’re to save Bromley (and the world) from certain disaster.

While he’s gone, an alien gives his undeserving, never-read-a-comic-in-his-life brother superpowers, then tells him to save the universe. Lots of references to superheroes but you can enjoy the book without having extensive knowledge of this genre, although it’s frustrating that the reference to ‘14 fingers’ is never fully explained? Not only is it filled with references of classic comic book heroes, it pulls in any of us who ourselves dreamed of having superpowers. While he’s gone, an alien gives his undeserving, never-read-a-comic-in-his-life brother superpowers and then tells him to save the universe. It blends an exhaustive knowledge of fantasy fiction in books, film, television, comics and computer games (which works even for uninitiates) with a well-observed understanding of family relationships, sibling rivalry, friendships and the things that can be horrible about starting secondary school.my most favorite part was when Luke needs a wee but when he comes back and realises his brother Zack is a super hero he is devastated that it wasn't him. Winner of the British Book Industry Children's Book of the Year 2016 Shortlisted for the Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards 2016 My brother is a superhero, I could have been one too, except I needed a wee. His first feature film was an adaptation of 'Five Children and It' (starring Kenneth Branagh and Eddie Izzard, with gala screenings at the Toronto and Tribeca Film Festivals). Siblings can be annoying, a responsibility, and the best person to team up with – or all of those things at once!
