It's bad enough that Adam's older brother, Keith, is an all-around athletic hero while Adam is always picked last for teams. But Keith also takes special pleasure in picking on Adam for being a weakling and a wimp. So when a group of bullies decides to rough up Adam and his best friend on a daily basis, Keith is the last person Adam is going to ask for help— even if it means standing up to the teenage terrorists all by himself. Dyan Sheldon's fast-paced and funny sequel to MY BROTHER IS A VISITOR FROM ANOTHER PLANET holds more surprises than Adam—or Keith—can imagine.

DYAN SHELDON says, "Just as in MY BROTHER IS A VISITOR FROM ANOTHER PLANET, the voice of Adam took over the writing. He did most of the work, which made it really fun for me." Dyan Sheldon divides her time between London,England,and Brooklyn, New York.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-5?This fast-paced, slightly more serious sequel to My Brother Is a Visitor from Another Planet (Candlewick, 1993) paints a realistic picture of sibling rivalry. Adam compares himself to his 13-year-old brother, and the best he can do to measure up to Keith's athletic abilities is to be tidier than him around the house. When Adam and a friend are terrorized by three bullies, they decide to handle the situation on their own rather than make an embarrassing scene. After avoiding the boys as long as possible, the pair try to teach themselves karate and do finally take a stand against them. It is then that Keith and his friend Charlie, who have suspected trouble, intervene. No one is hurt, and the result is increased trust between the brothers. Also, Adam learns that it's not so bad having a sibling who's a superhero. Pair this page-turner about dueling brothers with Stephen Manes's Chocolate-Covered Ants (Scholastic, 1993) for a winning team.?Christina Dorr, Calcium Primary School, NY
