Super Stan by Matt Robertson

Super Stan by Matt Robertson is a great classic picture book about the relationship between two brothers.  It is a fun simple book that looks at sibling rivalry but also brotherly love!


This story is about two brothers Jack and Stan, though they are brothers they are very different. Stan is a superhero and he can throw further……jump higher……than his brother and Stan can even fly! When Jack does something ordinary, Stan does something extra ordinary! Jack is tired of being Stan’s older brother. On Jack’s birthday, he hopes Stan won’t spoil his day but Stan quickly starts to show off, but when things go wrong………. Jack steps in…….. Could he save the day? What a perfect, heart-warming ending!


This book can simply be read and enjoyed but the story has a clear simple message that could be utilised to discuss brotherly relationships. The illustrations are great and really capture all the different emotions of the different characters. It’s a great read!
