This book is very funny and exciting!
natalie from Year 5, Stirling Primary School:
The main characters are Luke and Zach. Luke is jealous that his brother has became a superhero, somehow he is going through something called puberty. The book is illustrated by David Solomons he is a peron that wrote the story MY HERO IS A SUPERHERO it is a fiction book because it didn't happen in real life
stella from Year 6, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Primary School:
I like this book because you can see a image in your like when they where in the tree house and Zack said he had super powers or when Luke and his dad where in the shed. You can see it in your mind
Nathan from Year 6, Montagu School, Mexborough:

Funny but boring at the same time
dakota from Year 5, Pheasant Bank Academy:
it was funny but it could do more retoricle questions I think
Harry from Year 6, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Primary School:
Amazingly funny, it puts you in the main characters shoes and makes you feel sympathy, lots of brilliant content and the intro is the best introduction this world has ever had the fate to have.
Eoin from Year 6, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Primary School:
It was a very good book my two favourite bits are when his arch nemesis was a girl and when he could have been one to but he needed a wee so that is why I give it marks 10 out of 10
Eleanor from Year 8, Ridgewood School:
Wow! What a worlwind of imagination! My brother is a Superhero lets your body ache with laughter as this book is a comedic, silly but extremly cool read! My Brother Is a Superhero is about a boy named Luke and his brother Zach! Just when Luke needs a wee, suddenly out of the blue an alien tranforms Zach into- a SUPERHERO!!!! How cool is that? However, trouble brews and Zach needs to save the world...and fast! Will Zach keep the world at bay with the helping hand of his brother Luke or will they both end up flat as a pancake? I loved this book because it has every childs dream of becoming a superhero included in to one magical book! As well as that, new suprises jump out in every chapter so you never want to put the book down! Lastly, I like this book a lot because I believe it will stick in my mind for a long time as the concept was so creative and fun to read! I would recommend this book for primary school students as it really fizzes up your brain with new ideas and questions especially in the younger age range! I would definitely rate this book a 10 as it was brain bursting fun and a easy read to enjoy! You never know, an alien might visit YOU to make you in to a superhero in the future!!
kady-leigh from Year 6, Mexborough School:
Luke's older brother Zack has just got his super powers and Luke asked can you shout lazes out of your finger tips Luke said if he could have had any powers but the answer was no because he needed a wee
Khadijah from Year 5, Stirling Primary School:
I am giving this book a 10 out of 10 because it is very creative and I like the way that there is a really cool brother who is into comics and superheroes and a mature nerdy brother that is a goodie 2 shoots when they got older they didn't get along but once Zac turned into a superhero Luke had to guide him on how to use his powers and his strength without being obvious so they eventually did and I love the part how he did not get to be a superhero because he needed a wee it is a very funny book it is abit unusual but that is what makes it unique I really recommend this book to anyone
olivia from Year 8, Ridgewood School:
this book is about a boy and his brother are having a normal life. Until one day while they are sat in a tree house little brother goes for a ... wee, then when he returns the most amazing thing happend to his brother. Then they go on adventure trying to find out big brothers nemis along the way little brothers freind helps. i really like superhores and extra ordinary characters but this is far way more exiting than any regular superhero book

kaitlin from Year 8, Ridgewood School:
this book is about a boy named zack with a normal life and his brother was Luke and they were just in there tree house and zack went into the house because he needed a wee. but you would never guess what he missed out on.... while Luke was gone zack got superpower and Luke was so jealous and he wanted them too and as trouble started to happen Zack had to help stop trouble. And he became a very popular on the news and his super hero name was star lad. i likes this book because it a storm of imagination and its a storm a storm you never want to get out of. it is great!. it a fabulous if you like a funny book it makes you stomach ache with laughter. this is definitely one of the books that you pick up and you cant put down. i would definitely recommend this book because it is so funny and that is why i rate this book a 10/10.

Chloe from Year 5, Windhill Primary School:
My brother is a superhero is a very interesting book because Luke's brother Zack goes to the toilet and when he comes back Luke has turned into a super hero. This book is also very funny because Zack dosen't like comics but Luke makes him read one.This is my favourite book so far I recommend reading it.
Jessica from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:
The book was a bit boring at first so I kept putting it down but if you like made up story then why don't you try it? At the end it got exciting with the story when they have to go on a wild adventure to find his brother, Zack, it was so funny at the end of the book.My favourite character was Lara.
Taylor from Year 7, Rossington All Saints School:
This book was funny it was about a 10 year old boy who wants to be a super hero he and his older brother Zach were in there tree house when he needs a wee he goes down to his house and left Zach there a space shuttle came down to earth and gives Zach super powers
Ellie-May from Year 7, Rossington All Saints School:
This book was magnificent. I loved it so much. Guys Read it NOW ! It is magical with what happened when all luke did was go for a wee then his brother zack was Star Lad. I think is magnificent. It has a bit of romance, a bit of comedy, a lot of humour x Ellie-May
Jacob from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:
This book is quite long I got bored of it as it got nearer the end. It is about a boy called Luke and his brother called Zack, Zack (super hero name star lad) gets granted super powers such as a radar in his head, a force field etc. and he must save two worlds at once from Nemesis. The pressure is on for Zack! Would you like to be Zack?
Melanie from Year 6, Woodfield Primary:
It was very funny but the only thing about the book was that I found it in the middle of boring and I didnt get half of the book
scott from Year 8, Rossington All Saints School:
i thought my bother is a superhero was an good book for me it was not a page turner but I do like superhero book and his bother was a very unlikely superhero. he now has a lot of responsibility of saving not 1 but 2 universes. that is why I gave this book a 6 out of 10.
Wilson from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:
This book was probably the best book I have ever read on the book awards lists. It was amazing in every way you look at it. I think the best things about it was the mystery and the adventure. In my opinion the mystery was the best thing about it. Also the tense it created was unreal. Just so you know I think this book would be suitable for 6 to 13 year olds. Overall this book was spectacular and that is why I rated this book a 10.
jack from Year 6, Montagu School, Mexborough:
keira from Year 7, Ridgewood School:
I really liked this book because it had lots of humour but it still kept you on edge as they hacked into security cameras and kept his identity a secret. It had a relatable storyline which made it more believable. I rate it 9/10
Tasha from Year 7, Ridgewood School:
This book is amazing! I was intrigued after the first few pages. It was really cool because it was about superheroes but still not 'just for boys'. It was so original but yet felt like I've read it a million times. It was really funny, original, weird (in a good way), and fun! I really enjoyed it and I definitely reccomend
Rose from Year 6, Montagu School, Mexborough:
I would not recommend this book but I think people who loves comics will love this book . my favorited part was when Luke went to the toilet for a wee and suddenly a flashing light came at Zack Luke's big brother .
Jessica from Year 6, Montagu School, Mexborough:
This book is ok but I think other people who love comics will like it better. My favourite part was when Zack's and his brother Luke, was in the kitchen using his super powers to peal potato's.
Danielle from Year 7, De Warenne Academy:
What I liked about it!: I really liked the fact that it really drew you in just by looking at the front cover and it saying and I quote 'I could've been one too except I needed a wee.' The way it was written like you could've been there. my favourite character is Luke because even though his brother has been given superpowers he is very cool about it. I would recommend this book to everyone. Thank you!! Danielle
Millie from Year 6, Montagu School, Mexborough:
Fantastic book. I really enjoyed reading this. I would defiantly rate this for all ages. I loved the ending and really want to find out what happens next.
Olivia from Year 6, Owston Park Primary School:
The title is My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons. WOW! This book really kept you on the edge of your seat. This washing machine of thought but all blended together perfectly. This book was unputdownable. The action, the humour and the silly names did it for me. I will never forget this book. Never ever ever. My favourite part was when Luke needed a wee and when Zack rescued Cara's phone. There was nothing in my wildest dreams to dislike about this book. Storyline 9/10. Recommendation for ages 8+
Ruby from Year 5:
Your book is brill David Solomon
Keira from Year 7, Ridgewood School:
When I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. It is funny yet so serious. Would the world depend on Starlad? This book has many unexpected turns and is like a rollercoaster going from one thing to the next to find the identity of Starlad. Even though this book is on the Primary list, i still think it is suitable for almost any age. I loved it! I would rate it 10/10!
Aaron from Year 4, Conisbrough Morley Place Junior School:
This book is a great action packed book from page one it was great. My favourite part was when Luke saved zack from cristither talbot.
Harvey from Year 7, The Armthorpe Academy:
This book is a very funny book. I would recommend it for younger people. It is an easy read. Adults may find it humorous aswell. It is a GREAT book!
Matthew from Year 7, The Armthorpe Academy:
Really Good Book!! It Is Good For All Ages And It Is My Favorate Book!! :)
Ellie from Year 7, Rossington All Saints School:
I love this book it is fantastic and amazing the most jumping out of your seat part Is when the professor takes star boy up to space ... JUST READ THIS BOOK IT IS FANTASTIC
Charley from Year 7, Ridgewood School:
I am a passionate reader with a favouritism of secondary books. Therefore I thought that this book was going to be extremely childish. However, what I read blew me away! This book is exceptionally written and it captures the imagery of the storyline immaculately. With Zach becoming a superhero (much to his little brothers dismay) this story kept me continuously thinking "will he be exposed?", "what trouble is to follow?" but most importantly, "Who is Nemesis?". This exceptional book kept me turning pages and wanting more. The only thing I am upset about is that there are no sequels to this astonishing Tale. I would definitely recommend this!!!
Nell from Year 8, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:
This was a good book and it has been written very well. There was a lot of description which made the story come to life more in your head and the characters were memorable. It also made you want to read on after every chapter and there was a lot of surprises in the book. I have only given this book 7/10 because I think it was for a younger audience plus I am not too keen on the superhero plot. I would recommend this book to someone between the age of 8 to 11 and who likes funny, fantasy, adventure stories.
Keaton from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:
This book is a very exciting book because when Luke's brother Zack gets kidnapped by someone. My favourite character is Luke because at the end he finds out that both his brother and Lara have superpowers.
Tobias from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:
This book is amazing! my favourite character is Zack because he is the guy that you would think that got superpowers like he's the person who likes MATHS HOMEWORK and doesn't know much about super heros. He's funny ; tall but has a liking for Cara. He daren't tell her......... Would you even dare tell her?
Syed from Year 5, Thorne Brooke Primary School:
It was so amazing that I would like to read it again it was so funny
Ruby from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:
If you like comics and mystery's then this is the book for you. It isn't actually a comic but it has superhero's and comic lovers like Serge and Luke. I gave this book a eight because at first it was quite boring and I kept putting it down but towards the end it started getting tense and I had to see what happened. My favourite character was Lara , altogether it was a good book.
Kieran from Year 6, Thorne Brooke Primary School:
I found this book hard to put down. It's about two brothers, Zack and Luke. When Luke goes for a wee Zack gets six superpowers but they have to figure out what they are. He has to save two universes from a villain called 'Nemesis'.
