My Gym Teacher is an Alien Overlord by David Solomons. REVIEW BY ROBO EPIC GUY (TAKEN, WITH PERMISSION, FROM HIS FANTASTIC WEBSITE)

Now, I was expecting this book to be incredible, but it was EVEN BETTER! I don't know one kid in my class that has read this book and not loved it! "My Gym Teacher is an Alien Overlord" was every bit as witty, crazy and entertaining as David's prize-winning sci-fi comedy, "My Brother is a Superhero". 

Recommended age: 8+

Rating: 5 stars

Fear points: 1/ 5 Nope nope nope nope nope nope

Category:  Mystery, magic, adventure, fiction

Synopsis :  

Luke, Zack, Serge, and Lara are back, but this time, Lara’s a superhero too. Luke thinks his gym teacher is a super villain, due to a few weird occurrences. He’s kind of right, but he's got her motives wrong as she wants to do something much, much different to what he suspects. Sue Dunham wants to host a TV series about destroying Earth (what a weirdo)! When Zack AND Lara don’t believe him (would you?), it’s up to him to save the world, but he can’t even get picked for football. If he’s going to try though, he’ll need the help of an old enemy and maybe a friend other than Serge. Zack’s not going to realise until it’s too late, so Lara’s really their only chance. Hmm, there's a problem, she doesn't even notice when her sister is replaced by a robot!

Stuff parents might wanna know:

Educational value: 1/5   It's a fictional story

Positive messages: 3/5   Touching relationship between siblings

Positive role models: 2/5   Lara

Violence: 1/5  A bit of fighting and sneezing, nothing much

Naughty bits:  0/5  Nah

Language: 0/5  Nope

Drinking, drugs, smoking:  0/5  Not by the hairs on my chinny-chin-chin
