The Guardian have published a list of “Fresh voices: 50 writers you should read now” – and we’re delighted to see that it includes David Solomons, author of the best-selling and award-winning My Brother is a Superhero series, as one of only five authors of children’s and young adult fiction!
Of David’s work, The Guardian write: “The Scottish screenwriter represents the best in contemporary comic writing for children – splendidly zany, full of irresistible trivia,but never scrimping on the emotional undertow that ensures longevity and heart. His first book for children, My Brother Is a Superhero, is subtitled “I could have been one too, except I needed a wee”; the story of comic geek Luke and his older brother Zack, unfairly given superpowers by a visiting alien, it won the Waterstones prize for children’s fiction in 2016, and its two sequels have since been flying off the shelves.”
