Summary

Zack and Lara have superpowers. Luke has new school shoes and a burning sense of resentment. He KNOWS that aliens disguised as gym teachers are about to attack Earth, but will anyone listen? No. So one dodgy pact with a self-styled supervillain later, and Luke is ready to save the world. He just needs to find his trainers.

My Gym Teacher Is an Alien Overlord is the action-packed sequel to the best-selling 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. Hilariously narrated by Joe Thomas, star of The Inbetweeners and Fresh Meat.

Every second child's dream - Hilarious

Do you have an annoying big brother? Do you read the Marvel Universe Encyclopedia? Do you hang out with the less popular boys? Do you have very little skill in PE?

My 10 year old could answer "yes" to all of the above questions and as a result thought this book was one of the most hilarious things he had ever listened too. It was him, but in an alternative universe. I enjoyed it immensely too because it is stuffed full of random sci fi cultural references which make it actually very clever, as well as being funny. Well worth a listen.

Amazing story line

I loved the story in this book. I am a nerd at heart and I could relate to a lot of the characters in this book. The performance was also amazing. I recommend this book to a younger audience but I’m sure many adults would like it too.

Lots of fun

I'm really enjoying listening to this series, I love all the comic book references and humor in these books.

I know they are aimed for younger people but a good fun source of escapism for any age.
