A touching story about a special and unusual friendship. When Wanda meets Alien they click as friends immediately even though they don’t speak the same language. They play happily together sharing adventures and having fun. But where have Wanda’s friends gone? When they re-appear, Wanda introduces Alien and they soon find that being different is not a barrier to friendship. Bold illustrations make this a vibrant picture book with a great theme.
