How would you feel if you suddenly came face to face with an alien? Tim is used to being bullied at school for all kinds of reasons but can he stand up to aliens? When Tim is kidnapped and taken to an aliens’ secret hideaway he learns the full extent of their fiendish plan and just how bad it would to be to have to live in its aftermath…Told at a cracking pace, this is an action-packed adventure rich in jokes and the unexpected.

Synopsis

Aliens Stink! by Stephen Cole

Some seriously weird stuff is happening on Planet Earth. Pollution is cleaned up overnight. A sweet smell fills the air. Strange lights are seen in the skies...Could they possibly be UFOs? Have aliens come to fix our world? Only one boy and his dad - and possibly his goldfish - know that the truth is stranger, scarier - and a whole lot smellier...

Kidnapped and taken to a super-secret base, Tim discovers the full extent of the alien threat ...and the extraordinary kids fighting it. With the aid of a little huggy alien, and a depressed guard, Tim and his weird new friends take the battle to the aliens. Oh, and that goldfish has a big part to play...!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

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.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
