Description

Sharp humour, comic plot devices stand-ups would be proud of, great characterisation, and references to comics and TV from my childhood made this a really enjoyable read.

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 Si eres fan de los superhéroes, de los comics y de las películas se ciencia ficción entonces este libro te va a encantar, se trata de una historia escrita por un fanático para un fanático. Denne boka treffer på alle plan. Den står litt i fare for å bli en kommentar til seg selv, så selvrefererende som Luke til enhver tid er om reglene for superhelthistorier. Men forfatter Solomons har skrevet en morsom, spennende og medrivende historie som passer for foreldre og barn - perfekt som lydbok på bilturen. year-old Luke knows everything about superheros. He has a great collection of comic books, went to Super Hero camp, and wants to be one more than anything else in the world. Then his older brother Zach got turned into a super hero by a random visit of an alien spaceship while Luke was in the bathroom! It should have been him! But it wasn’t, and now Luke is angry. Besides, Zach won’t even wear the cool “Star Guy” costume Luke made him. Sure, he’s fighting crime and everything, but he is supposed to defeat Nemesis, and they don’t even know who she is. But when Star Guy gets in real trouble, Luke (and Lara and Serge) might be his only chance for help.What I especially loved about this book was that it was the non-powered ones who eventually saved the day. Everyone can relate to wanting to be a superhero, but it's so nice that it was the knowledge and abilities of the non-powered characters that ultimately triumphed. I think the author did well on the age ranges, too. The younger kids and the older brother were all done well and felt genuine. The adults felt a little ridiculous at times, but I guess since this is from a child's perspective, I can go with it. And I liked the relationship between the two brothers. I don't think I've ever laughed so much while reading a middle grade book because it's so easy to relate to these characters. And of course I'm many, many light years away from the reading demographic it's aimed at. I'll be looking out for more from this author in future and I'll be recommending this one, a lot. This book series will have readers roll on the floor laughing with tear-inducing giggles! It's also the perfect next step for readers who may have loved the Baby Aliens series and want to up their reading game. El único detalle por el cual recibió la calificación de 4.5 es que es un libro traducido al español de España, por lo que encontraran algunas palabras que en México no conocemos y que en un par de ocasiones no permitió que supiéramos de lo que hablaban hasta que buscamos su significado.

So far any lady reading this (unless an avid fan of superheroes) has switched off the moment superheroes are mentioned. Clever writing from David Solomon has created a novel that clinches hold of all readers. This is due to, the family connection and love for one another throughout the story and a very intuitive girl named Lara.

Keep in touch

Hvis man tenker på superhelter hele dagen, er det skikkelig surt at det er det er storebroren din som får i oppgave å redde to verdener, bare fordi man selv var inne for å tisse akkurat i det romvesenet med det viktige oppdraget landet i hagen. Loved the main characters: Luke Parker is a great character and whilst making some flawed decisions is well meaning and a person that has many positive traits Por otro lado, la edición merece una calificación sobresaliente, de entrada, está editado en pasta dura, algo que a mí en particular me encanta, y segundo, tiene una portada muy bonita, fiel completamente a lo que leeremos en la historia. Además, el título de cada capítulo viene acompañado de una pequeña ilustración relacionada al capítulo, y si bien no es un libro ilustrado, ni una novela gráfica, tampoco lo demerita, de hecho, en palabras de mi hijo menor de 7 años, ese detalle estuvo mejor así, ya que les permitió hacer uso de su imaginación, y recrear ellos mismos en su cabeza cada una de las escenas. I also liked the alliterative name of Lara Lee, which is typical of old comics – Lois Lane, Peter Parker, Bruce Banner etc.
