The Lovereading4Kids comment
A brilliantly funny and utterly inventive tale of useless superheroes and disgusting aliens from the acclaimed Anthony McGowan, ideal for boys of 9-11.
Einstein's Underpants by Anthony McGowan
An alien spaceship heads for Earth, intent on finding a new (human) food source after gobbling up a couple of cosmonauts in orbit...
A meteorite heads for Earth, unknowingly set for collision ...
An underground volcano on Earth is close to eruption and will cause untold destruction and tidal waves of unimaginable proportions...
So, Earth is pretty much doomed. The only thing standing in the way is James. And his mate Melvyn, the unluckiest boy ever known. And a pair of pants that used (possibly) to belong to Einstein and give genius powers to whoever wears them. On his head. James and Melvyn don't even know that they are meant to be superheroes, until James' mad scientist uncle is hauled off to the loony bin, leaving behind instructions for James.
The boys start to pull together a team of kids who all have their own powers - there's. The Hurricane, a boy who can fart in tune; Tortoise Boy, a boy who has ...erm...a tortoise; Felicity, who's really good at organising stuff; and, Really Annoying Girl, who always knows what you're going to say before you say it. Together they must stand to battle the aliens and save the entire planet. Yes, you're right. Earth is doomed.
