A super-silly, laugh-a-minute, illustrated intergalactic adventure

Aliens! Spaceships! Poo-scented air fresheners!

From the creator of the zany Iguana Boy series, James Bishop’s Worst Day Ever is a blast of intergalactic adventure, aliens and empathy. Packed with high-stakes hijinks and awesome illustrations by Fay Austin, it’s a fast-paced page-turner with huge appeal for fans of funny fiction that doesn’t let up, with plenty of letting-off type jokes, to boot!

“My name is Mylan Bletzleburger and I come from a little yellow and red planet called Empathia”. As the planet’s name suggests, Empathians are “cursed with an overwhelming sense of empathy for others… We have so much empathy for others that we feel exactly what those around us are feeling, from complex emotions to stubbed toes”. Talking of stubbed toes, that’s exactly what’s happened to Chloe when Mylan starts following her, as a result of him travelling the universe in search of people to help. Then, when Mylan makes a mistake, the unlikely pair find themselves having to save planet Earth from being recycled.

With countless rib-tickling descriptions (“the Universe stinks... It started off as a light stink, a bit like when you fart in the bath”) and hilarious banter between Mylan and Chloe, Worse Day Ever is sure to transform even the most irritating of days into a far brighter experience.

The Worst Day Ever! Synopsis

Meet Mylan - an ordinary blue alien. He's travelling the universe, looking for someone having a bad day, to help them. Meet Chloe. She's just stubbed her toe. Now she's being followed by an alien. Her day can only get better, right? WRONG. Every bad day begins with a stubbed toe. Mylan Bletzleburger's research proves this. But even he couldn't predict how Chloe's day would escalate from a sore foot to the entire Earth being swallowed up.

Can Mylan and Chloe save the planet? Will Mylan ever pilot a cool spaceship? And will Tanka Tanka Woo Woo, the Queen of the Universe, ever share her haircare secrets?

Funny and packed with action and quirky aliens, this intergalactic adventure is out of this world!
