Take a look inside

“The sequel to the critically acclaimed and prize winning ‘My Brother is a Superhero’ is absolutely marvellous. Prepare yourself for another nail biting adventure from the magnificent David Solomons… This book is stuffed full of humour, excitement and the unexpected. I really thought that ‘My Brother is a Superhero’ couldn’t be beaten but David Solomons has created a comic masterpiece full of thrills, spills and laugh out loud moments.”

“…an extremely funny book… Full of satirical allusions, quips, comic dialogue and surprises in prose and plot, this irresistible entertainment reminds us that everyone looks like a superhero from the outside, but inside they are all worried about the same things, and that goodies and baddies are not all that clear-cut.”

“Wildly funny.”


“My Gym Teacher is An Alien Overlord, the second book in the My Brother is A Superhero (these titles!) series, reminds me a lot of Louise Rennison at her best. Though it’s written for a younger audience, My Gym Teacher has that similar sense of heart. It revels in its space and it’s bright, swift and deeply, genuinely, funny.”
