About this deal

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The two are going to have to team up if they’re to save Bromley (and the world) from certain disaster.

When Luke is confronted with Stellar, his superpowered twin from another dimension, he is highly suspicious. The anti-climactic thing is that the brother that doesn't like super heros becomes one and that makes me laugh. His geeky brother Zack gets to be world-saving Star Lad instead, but Luke has his race-against-time moment when Zack is kidnapped.

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. It is infused with the spirit of larger than life heroes and colourful comic book trivia yet at its heart is a touching relationship between siblings… so brilliantly plotted that one never knows what to expect next. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Fast-moving, very funny, and gleefully mining the comic potential of the superhero genre, this is an inventive story that handles the combined frustrations and affections of sibling relationships with sensitivity. 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.

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. If you chose this fantastic book you will not regret it you would finish a page and wont to read it over and over again. The funniest thing I found when I was reading the book was the quote "I could have been one too, except I needed a wee". bought as a jokey type present for a 13 year old who likes to read but doesn't always get along with his brother.Be careful, though - there's a danger of actual tears and serious stomach-hurt from doubling-over with laughter.

This is a good book however i think that i would have enjoyed it more if there was a bit more action and mystery. David also won the 2018 Laugh Out Loud Awards (Lollies) with the second book in this series, My Gym Teacher is an Alien Overlord. Not only is it filled with references of classic comic book heroes, it pulls in any of us who ourselves dreamed of having superpowers. I also loved the part near the front when Luke needs a wee and he goes but whilst he is there Zack becomes a superhero.

Even if you do you are no where near the frustration of Luke the poor little kid who missed his chance of getting super powers because he needed to pee! 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. He was born in Glasgow and now lives in Dorset with his wife, the novelist Natasha Solomons, and their son, Luke. However, when Zack is kidnapped by his arch-nemesis, it is Luke and his friends who come to the rescue. If you had spent most of your 11 years on earth devouring comics and knew all there was to know about superheroes, their powers and arch enemies, wouldn t you be annoyed if your Maths nerd of an older brother was chosen to join their ranks?
