Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Award 2011: Most Fun Story with Pictures*
Prize-winning illustrator/ author Chris Riddell has created a fabulous cast of strange creatures and the unusual antics they get up to in a brilliantly imagined and conceived world. Subtitled How to Spot an Alien Invasion, Alienography is both a comprehensive guide to the world of UFOs and a number of deliciously inventive stories about everything that may – or may not – happen in outer space. Descriptions of carnivorous plants such as The Terrifids or the Gums, alien Stealth Invaders who closely resemble discarded chewing gum are hilarious and perfectly matched by grotesque and amazingly diverse illustrations. There are hours and hours of delight to be had from this outstandingly creative and superbly produced volume.

Alienography Or: How to Spot an Alien Invasion and What to Do About it by Chris Riddell
Do you know the difference between a Nostromian Weevil and a Zyglon Tentacle Beast? Could you resist an invasion of Purple Peekons? And can you outwit a Fantabbydosian? No? You need this book! Rich in comic detail, this extraordinary book is packed with revolting aliens and impossible spaceships. Magnificently illustrated and with novelty elements including five pull-out postcards, a mini 'Who's What and From Where' booklet and a 'Bottom Trumps' card game, this is Chris Riddell at his very best.
