July 2017 Book of the Month | A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month July 2017
Award-winning David Solomons’ hero Luke is back for a sizzling new adventure and this time he has acquired Stellar, a super-powered twin from another dimension. If a twin sounds like fun, think again. Stellar is super-cool with super-hero hair and rocket-powered shoes and Luke finds him exceptionally irritating. And he is sure he is up to no good. After all, Luke reasons, why would he travel out of his own dimension and across space if he didn’t have an evil plan? Luke’s schemes to bring down his evil twin are hilarious and predictably imaginative. ~ Julia Eccleshare
The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “My Brother is a Superhero set the bar high, but this third in the quartet does not fall short – it’s just as crammed with laughs, adventure, wit and emotional depth. And Serge. Magnifique!”
