Help! I'm an Alien Synopsis

I have nothing in common with my family!’

Daniel Kendal is different—different to the other Kendals anyway.  After all, he’s the only one with brown hair and brown eyes and what’s more, he’s taller than his family, his friends and probably everyone else in the entire world.

Big sister Jessie has made it clear just how different Daniel is, by explaining that he is in fact, an alien, kindly adopted by her parents. Confused, Daniel turns to his best friends, Eddie and Gordon the Geek, for help. Together perhaps they can work out where he really belongs.

Can you Help! Daniel Kendal do this special Brainiac word search?
