Marv and the Mega Robot combines robots and superheroes with a hugely relatable lead character and brilliant illustrations by Paula Bowles. It's the first in a fantastic series and the perfect book for newly independent readers.


Marvin is an ordinary boy who loves spending time with Grandpa, reading comics, and making science experiments with his best friend Joe. But everything changes when he discovers a mysterious superhero suit hidden in the attic . . . to his amazement, Marvin learns that he is next in a long line of superheroes. Now the time has come to meet his destiny!

When the Science Fair is thrown into chaos by super-villain Mastermind and her giant robot, Marvin is the only one who can stop them. Will Marvin be brave enough to step into his power-and into his superhero suit-to become the great and marvellous superhero Marv?

Alex Falase-Koya was inspired to write his debut novel Marv and the Mega Robot because he struggled to find superheroes in fiction who looked like him. By creating Marv, a superhero whose strengths are kindness and imagination, Alex hopes to have created a character to whom all children can relate. A previous winner of Spread the Word’s 2019 London’s Writers Awards for YA and Children’s, Alex lives in Walthamstow with his girlfriend and two cats.
