A warm and funny picture book about sibling rivalry ... and superheroes!

A warm and funny picture book about sibling rivalry ... and superheroes!

Life can be hard when your little brother is a superhero. The whole world thinks Super Stan is AMAZING. No one ever seems to notice 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!)

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Picture Book Prize.
