Reviews

"This introductory book to a new series from the creators of the Aliens Love Underpants is perfect for capturing the imagination of fans of The Gruffalo." - Booktrust

Praise for Aliens Love Underpants series:

"The catchy bouncy rhymes perfectly complement the colourful wacky pictures of Martians in outsized Y-fronts." Georgia Coleridge, Daily Mail

'..with lots of smelly socks, mouldy cheese, bellybutton fluff and a good fight to get them giggling, this is a guaranteed favourite.' Sally Morris, Daily Mail

"You'll laugh your pants off!" Parent's News

"This book is a feast of colour and humour" Red House Children's Book Award 2008

"This fantastic rhyming story - with hilarious pictures of aliens and, well, underpants - is simply pantastic!" Galaxy British Book Awards 2008

"My three-year-old son Ezra ... says that he finds its attempt at post-ironic subversion of the sci-fi genre tiresome yet addictive. The things they say!" David Baddiel, The Times

"Aliens Love Underpants is a jolly romp in rhyme and pictures" School Librarian

Amrit Bunet – Teen

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East
