An excellent children's book to improve English GCSE results My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons

David Solomons was awarded the Children's Book of the Year 2016 for My Brother is a Superhero, his debut children's novel, and rightfully so.

The book follows Luke, a comic-mad eleven year old, who shares a tree house with his brother. One evening, while Zack is doing his homework, Luke leaves the tree house to go to the loo. For the five minutes that he is gone, a powerful alien from a different universe visits the treehouse and gives his brother superpowers, instructing him that he has to save both universes against Nemesis.

Luke feels that with his immense knowledge of superheroes, that it should have been him. He is both jealous of his brother and delighted to have a superhero in the family. Together, they begin to explore Zack's powers when he is kidnapped as Luke looks on helplessly.

Zack's kidnap could not have come at a worse time, as the world is threatened and he is its only hope. In order to save the world, Luke has no choice but to rescue his brother. He feels he needs assistance, and enlists the help of two friends.

The book is funny and engaging. It is full of tense moments making it hard to put down. If David Solomons continues to write such superb books for children, he will become a highly respected, well read author.

descriptions and details of the most common illegal drugs including cannabis, ecstasy, cocaine, and ketamine

Would you know if your child tried drugs?

Drugs are a fact of life. Furthermore, drugs are readily available at school, all schools, and peer pressure is huge.

Every parent, teacher, guardian, or person who has contact and/or responsibility for a child or young person should therefore know about drugs in order to be able to respond quickly and effectively should a young person or child be tempted.

antibiotics resistance is on the rise presenting major challenges to modern medicine

How do we avoid the antibiotics apocalypse?

Every year, at least 700,000 people die from drug-resistant infections. It is why government scientists have described antibiotic resistance as one of the greatest global threats of the 21st Century.

So what are people doing to try to avert the antibiotics apocalypse? Well, it turns out, quite a lot.

First, there are those who are trying to get us to take fewer antibiotics. That is because the more antibiotics we all take, the more resistant bacteria become.No one knows exactly how many children are being taught at home, but new figures suggest numbers in England are growing. Why is this?

Saturn mission approaches tour finale

The Cassini spacecraft is beginning the end phases of its mission to Saturn.

Having spent 12 years flying around the ringed planet and its moons at a relatively safe distance, the probe is now about to undertake a series of daredevil manoeuvres.

These will see the satellite repeatedly dive extremely close to - and through - the rings over the next nine months.

The Gaia space telescope

Gaia clocks speedy cosmic expansion

Europe's Gaia space telescope has been used to clock the expansion rate of the Universe and - once again - it has produced some head-scratching.

The reason? The speed is faster than what one would expect from measurements of the cosmos shortly after the Big Bang. Some other telescopes have found this same problem, too.

But Gaia's contribution is particularly significant because the precision of its observations is unprecedented.

A vinergaroon, one of many strange bugs

Tarantulas, Killer Caterpillars, and the Most Misunderstood Bugs

Shakara Maggitt hands me a vinegaroon, or whip scorpion, a sci-fi looking bug with big black claws used to hold their prey. "They're so cute!" she says, and I'm shocked to find myself agreeing with her.

Bonding with bugs is the point of the Insect Expo 2016, and the impetus for Weird Animal Question of the Week to ask: What is the world's most misunderstood insect? Spiders, mosquitoes, and bed bugs were also mentioned, but here are the good, the bad, and the bugly.

The Horsehead Nebula just off Orion's Belt

Astronomy's dark horse lit up by Hubble

One of the most iconic astronomy images is that of the Horsehead Nebula. Located just off the easternmost star along Orion's Belt, the Horsehead is remarkable for being a "dark" nebula rather than emitting or reflecting light on its own. This is due to its dust-rich nature and the background emission nebula, caused by bright, young stars that ionize the gaseous interstellar material.

But in 2013, the Hubble Space Telescope team released an infrared view of the Horsehead, presenting a wholly unfamiliar view of this familiar astronomical sight. What it revealed was a slew of nebulous materials, low-mass interior stars and star-forming regions deep inside the nebula itself.
