My Cousin is a Time Traveller

Publisher: Nosy Crow

Review

Luke’s big brother Zack is a superhero, whose alter ego, Star Lad, frequently saves the world from supervillains and alien overlords.

Envious of his brother’s abilities, Luke is flabbergasted when Zack announces that he intends to renounce his superhero status, relinquishing his powers to become a regular boy. As Luke digests this devasting news, he receives a surprise visit from his cousin Dina who, he is astounded to discover, is a time traveller. She has journeyed from the year 2067 with some alarming news: machines have become self-aware and are taking over the world.

As Star Lad has hung up his cape, Luke must step into the breach to save humankind. Armed with his wit, ingenuity and a pair of heated unicorn slippers, he joins forces with Dark Flutter (aka Lara from next door) and his best friend Serge, embarking on a mission to prevent household gadgets from enslaving humanity for all time.

This is the fifth title in an exceptionally funny series about 11-year-old Luke and his chaotic superhero world. Witty, zany and full of references to science fiction classics, this laugh-out-loud page turner will have readers on the edge of their seats.
