My Gym Teacher is An Alien Overlord is out in just under a week!

There’s just under a week to go until we publish My Gym Teacher is an Alien Overlord by David Solomons, the highly-anticipated sequel to the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize winning My Brother is a Superhero – the book will be out on Thursday!

Big on laughs and full of character and plot, this rocket fuelled follow up is perfect for readers who like their comedy with a supercharged side helping of action and adventure…

Zack and Lara have superpowers. Luke has new school shoes and a burning sense of resentment. He KNOWS that aliens disguised as gym teachers are about to attack Earth but will anyone listen? No. So one dodgy pact with a self-styled supervillain later, and Luke is ready to save the world. He just needs to find his trainers.

Here’s a look inside the book:

And here’s what the critics said about David’s phenomenal debut:

“A non-stop action-packed, laugh-out-loud winner of a story” – School Library Journal (starred review)

“As genuinely open-hearted as the genre that inspired it” – Kirkus

“You know a book is going to be good when you’re giggling after five minutes” – The Guardian

And there’s a fantastic free game app for My Brother is a Superhero, too! It’s an incredibly addictive arcade-style asteroids game: the aim is to prevent incoming asteroids from reaching the earth with the help of different superpower icons – and the longer you last, the higher your score! With a deceptively simple gameplay mechanism that will keep you entertained for HOURS, a fantastic retro, graphic design, and amazing original music and sound effects, the app is out-of-this-world fun. Here’s a quick preview of the free My Brother is a Superhero game app:
