My Brother is a Superhero – what’s it about?

Tomorrow we’re publishing My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons – a fantastic, funny, warm-hearted novel for 9-12 year olds, and one of the most exciting debuts (I think so, anyway) of the year.

But what better way to describe the book than by having our Target Reader explain it?

We gave proof copies of the book to a class of 10 year olds at Netley Primary School in London, and they’ve been filming their responses to it (we’ve posted a couple here and here) – and the results have been BRILLIANT.

Today’s video features on of our readers explaining the plot – so beware of spoilers!

You can read the opening of the book for yourself below – and you can find it in shops from tomorrow!

We’d love to see your own reactions to My Brother is a Superhero – so if you buy the book and read it with a child, there’ll be prizes for anyone who sends us their videos. If you have a video that you’d like to share, send an email to tom at nosycrow dot com or tweet to @NosyCrowBooks.
