The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011 and described as “a child’s version of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”. Piccadilly Press MD Brenda Gardner says, “We are delighted that Ros is on the shortlist for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. She is one of funniest writers of today, and no-one is better at pinpointing the absurd in everyday life!”
This is the first in a terrific new series for 7+ year olds – both boys and girls. Packed with some hilarious illustrations and the story itself is a real page-turner. It features an alien who comes to spy on earth and in order to meld in disguises himself as a schoolboy. He thinks earthlings are very strange and having to wear clothes is almost the most strange thing of all. The story is told through a series of letters to his best friend and the story is full of humour and pace which is sure to appeal to even the most reluctant of readers.
