Unexpected Super Spy: Book 2 (Planet Omar) Paperback – 6 February 2020
It has the feel of the Tom Gates and the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, but here our hero is Omar, a young Muslim boy who lives with his parents, younger brother Esa and elder sister Maryam ... the illustrations are jolly, the writing is light on its feet
and Mian's gentle mixing of humour and Muslim tradition is fresh and necessary.
Planet Omar: Unexpected Super Spy (Hodder) by Zanib Mian, with cheery illustrations by Nasaya Mafaridik, returns to the world of imaginative, impulsive Omar. Wild imaginings, daft jokes and invented swearwords add up to another funny, sweet, inclusive story (The Guardian)

What can I say? You must get it for your children. It's super funny and great doodles. After No1 we had high expectations with regards to second in the series and author didn't disappoint us at all. Love it.
You can’t help but love Omar whether he is caught sneaking down to play X-Box after bedtime or giving his mum the most creative (though not necessarily enjoyable) full-sensory spa treatment ever.
In the original Planet Omar, Zanib Mian embedded into the story details and explanations about British-Pakistani and British Muslim life within a frankly gorgeous and loving family. This book similarly explores concepts to celebrate diversity with young British Pakistani and Muslim children recognising themselves in Omar’s family and the way they have both British and Pakistani-Muslim elements
Planet Omar is a super-cute illustrated adventure through the life of Omar as he shines and struggles but always with kindness and good intentions in his heart.
Its reasonably well written but not sure we would be looking at more in this collection.
My 6 and 2 years daughters loved it!
Now we are buying the first book, and a third, if he does one!
For the price, is a no brain present for little ones...
There should be more books where the character is Muslim and a good kid/person...
I would recommend this book for 7-8 year olds.
Mind you, he pretty much hates reading...but he couldn’t not put either book down and finished them in 3 days, which is unimaginable!
Great books and I hope there will be more!
