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.

Pretty good but a bit bad🙂

It's great but it'll have to have recorded talking it gets a bit boring when the person who is recording says all of the speaking it's nice for him/her to do the main character but not the others

My gym teacher is an alien overlord

I like the story but I didn't understand some parts at first. I for example I thought when star lad said "dark flutter" after Luke made her angry and he saw someone in destress on his radar that he meant dark flutter was in destress but soon after I realised star lad wanted her to help him.
