Are you stuck in a holiday rut? Need a change from your usual two weeks in Boredom-on-Sea? Want to explore more far flung destinations but not sure where to start? Well look no further because Alfie Fleet's Guide to the Universe will show you the best and worst holiday destinations that are literally out of this world!

And if you're a thrill-seeking adventurer then head for Solstice and join the pirates on a cruise around the planet - but watch out for the hostile mermaids and the strange recluse who inhabits the Isle of Sheds . . . Alfie Fleet and the Professor are on a planet-hopping quest-keep up if you can! More than funny fiction - this story does for travel guides what Wimpy Kid did for diaries and Tom Gates did for doodle books.

Then join Alfie Fleet and discover a whole universe of wonders (and things that are not so wonderful too, but we won't go into that now).

Thrills and adventure await, just hop on board the slightly old and rusty moped of infinity! More than funny fiction - this story does for travel guides and maps what Wimpy Kid did for diaries and Tom Gates did for doodle books. With amazing illustrations by Chris Mould throughout, this book is a visual feast and will appeal to readers everywhere.
