A warm and funny picture book tale about sibling rivalry - with a superhero twist!

A warm and funny picture book tale about sibling rivalry - with a superhero twist!

Life can be hard when your little brother is a superhero. The whole world thinks Super Stan is AMAZING . . . but no one notices his big brother, Jack.

But sometimes, even a superhero needs a little help. And when a superhero is in trouble, only a SUPER big brother can save the day.

Matt Robertson's feel-good tale tackles the often tricky subject of sibling rivalry with warmth, humour and fun - teaching brothers and sisters everywhere how to get along. (And that they are all equally SUPER!)

Super Stan is the winner of the Dundee Picture Book Award 2017!
