Luke is a comic mad eleven-year-old who shares his treehouse with a geeky older brother. Luke’s only mistake is to go for a wee at the wrong time.

While he’s gone, an alien gives his undeserving never-read-a-comic-in-his-life brother superpowers and tells him to save the universe.

Winner of the 2016 Waterstones Children’s book prize, the first in a series and laugh-out-loud humour. What’s not to enjoy?
