Reviews

Praise for My Brother Is a Superhero Winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize British Book Industry Awards Children's Book of the Year "A non-stop action-packed, laugh-out-loud winner of a story. The main characters are finely drawn and their voices are authentic...A great book that will charm reluctant readers as well as anyone who has ever dreamed of being a superhero." --School Library Journal, starred review "Luke's narration is pitch perfect, providing just the right amount of snark, admiration, and cleverness...A hinted-at sequel will be eagerly anticipated by readers, who will want to return not only for the whizz-bang superhero stuff but also for the memorable and carefully developed sibling dynamic." --BCCB "A loving tribute to the genre consumed with capes, masks, supervillains, and great responsibility." --Kirkus Reviews "Comic-book devotees like Luke will appreciate references to familiar characters (Zack initially christens himself Starman until Luke reminds him, "There's already a Starman. You'll probably get sued"), but all readers will enjoy the deadpan narration that reveals the unexpected difficulties of being a modern-day superhero." --Publishers Weekly
