Top comedy from a superhero writer

David Solomons is utterly brilliant, and My Cousin is a Time Traveller is a work of comedy genius. It’s full of pitch-perfect observational humour, with a plot that magnifies real fears (machines taking over the world) to ridiculous and hilarious levels (led by toasters and a washer-dryer*); and it packs more and better superhero in-jokes into one chapter than the Marvel film franchise has managed in its entire oeuvre. And there’s a terrifically exciting story too. Simply the best entertainment to be had between two covers.

*after all, there’s more technology in the average washing machine than there was in the Apollo space programme that sent a rocket to the Moon.

Other Info

The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “Nothing cheers me up like a new Solomons. And this one does not disappoint. Laughs, but proper emotional heft too. Brilliant.”

The fifth in the hilarious, award-winning and bestselling series – over 205,000 copies sold to date!

My Cousin Is a Time Traveller Synopsis

Luke's dad has bought a lot of gadgets recently and not one of them works as it's supposed to. Maybe it's because a machine-from-the-future is stalking Bromley, playing havoc with all the tech and trying to stop Star Lad going on a date. Could this be the Rise of the Machines? Luke knows what he must do - he just needs his fellow SCARF members to help, or it will be the end of everything...
