Synopsis

When Angus Met Alvin by Sue Pickford

Angus is a gentle alien who loves growing things in his space garden. But his world is turned upside-down by the unwelcome arrival of Alvin, a cocky and boastful alien from a different planet. Until Alvin' s clever-clever tricks misfire and turn him into a minute, pin-size creature, Angus helps his visitor recover - if he promises to behave better and learn some manners. Maybe the two aliens will end up friends after all ...

Reviews

'a zany tale of friendship and acceptance, with bright and colourful artwork which will draw young readers right into the story and plenty of comical situations... to keep them laughing all the way through.' 'The bright, colourful illustrations have a futuristic feel to them adding to the theme of the story. These is clever use of space, including creative designs on both end pages and each time you look at the them you discover something new.'

. Witty and spunky, there's a good use of page and zippy illustrations to gallop alongside the taut, combative storyline.

very funny... bright and colourful

... to keep them laughing all the way through.'
