Summary

Luke and his brother have swapped bodies by accident. Zack's got Luke's weird feet while Luke has Zack's superpowers! Now he needs another world-threatening adventure to try them out. Could a family mini-break at Great Minds Leisure Park be his chance? Probably, because that's where his super-clever arch-enemy lurks, fermenting dastardly plans and bubbling gently....

My Arch-Enemy Is a Brain In a Jar is the fourth instalment of Luke's laugh-out-loud adventures. From the author of My Brother Is a Superhero, winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize and the British Book Industry Awards Children's Book of the Year, and My Gym Teacher Is an Alien Overlord, winner of a Lollies Laugh Out Loud 2017 Book Award.  

Hilariously narrated by Joe Thomas, star of The Inbetweeners and Fresh Meat.

Genuinely funny - great series for 10 year old boy

This series is genuinely hilarious and deals with the troubles of being the younger, non-super brother to a super-hero teenager. As the mother of two boys (aged 10 and 12) I can see much of my boys interactions in this book. You don't have to start from the beginning, but in it would probably help as there are some characters who crop up from an earlier story thread.

Nothing too challenging plot wise, scare wise or language wise. My 10 year old even told me later he'd dug the book out of the school library to finish the story at school, because we had got to an exciting bit of the audio-book & he couldn't wait until later. It that's not a great review, I don't know what is.

Review by Emma aged nearly 7

The story is adventurous and you are always thinking what will happen next. There are some surprises. I think Luke is very funny and always thinks everything is suspicious. I really can’t wait for the next book!
