“A non-stop action-packed, laugh-out-loud winner of a story”: a starred review for My Brother is a Superhero

It’s not long now until My Brother is a Superhero, the hilarious, laugh-out-loud debut by David Solomons, will be released into the wild, and it’s already getting some FANTASTIC reviews.

As well as some lovely video reviews by our class of child reviewers, and a great review from Steve Coogan (“A brilliantly funny story about growing up, sibling rivalry and saving the world. You’ll laugh until you fall out of our tree house.”), the book has now earned its first starred review, from none other than School Library Journal!

In their review, the journal call the book: “a non-stop action-packed, laugh-out-loud winner of a story. The main characters are finely drawn and their voices are authentic … A great book that will charm reluctant readers as well as anyone who has ever dreamed of being a superhero. It also makes for a fun read-aloud.”

This is such a fantastic honour for My Brother is a Superhero, and we are so thrilled that SLJ love the book as much as we do.

If you’d like to find out what all the fuss is about, here are the first two chapters of the book:
