My Arch-Enemy Is a Brain In a Jar


Luke and his brother have swapped bodies by accident. Zack’s got Luke’s weird feet while Luke has Zack’s SUPERPOWERS! Now he needs another world-threatening adventure to try them out. Could a family mini-break at Great Minds Leisure Park be his chance? Probably, because that’s where his super-clever arch-enemy lurks, fermenting dastardly plans and bubbling gently…

My Arch-Enemy Is a Brain In a Jar is the fourth instalment of Luke’s laugh-out-loud adventures. From the author of My Brother Is a Superhero, winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize and the British Book Industry Awards Children’s Book of the Year, and My Gym Teacher Is an Alien Overlord, winner of a Lollies Laugh Out Loud 2017 Book Award.

Books don’t come much funnier than these! Packed with heart and soul, this series is perfect for fans of David Baddiel and David Walliams.

Take a look inside

“Another read-me title. It’s a thriller with a decent dollop of metaphysics.”

The Times

“Fans of the series will not be disappointed as the mirth-inducing superhero madness continues apace.  A cracking book full of the laughs, in-jokes and self-disparaging nudges I’ve come to expect from David Solomons.”

– Library Girl and Book Boy (blog)

“A witty adventure moving at a hundred miles-an-hour, filled with Solomons’ own brand of comedy featuring superhero jokes, witty dialogue and entertaining one-liners.”

– Books for Topics

“Another rip-roaring adventure… child-like humour balanced by more subtle humour. ”

– Mr Davies Reads

“Another unmissable brilliantly comic comic adventure story.”
