LoveReading View on Letters from an Alien Schoolboy 2 : Cosmic Custard

This new adventure of the Alien Schoolboy is packed full of excellent jokes that will delight fans of the original title. Flowkwee is on a mission back to the freezing, grumpy, spaceblob called earth – often referred to as the armpit of the universe. He already knows how hopeless the miserable duffers of earth blobs are but he’s back again disguised as Nigel Custard Bogey and a lot of ridiculous names besides. Earth, seen through Flowkwee’s eyes, looks as ridiculous as it is hilarious giving pause for thought at some of the things we take for granted.

The second book in a hilarious new series for young readers. Click here to see the first which was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.


Letters from an Alien Schoolboy 2 : Cosmic Custard Synopsis

Flowkwee can’t wait to take his Earthling friend, Susan, to planet Faa. He wants to introduce her to all his mums and dads and show her that four heads are always better than one. But Susan hasn’t got an intergalactic passport and so she’s refused entry. Flowkwee has no choice but to take Susan back to Earth and stay there disguised as a schoolboy until he can catch the next spaceship home. While on Earth, Flowkwee has new instructions from the Emperor of Faa to bring back some Earthling creatures, so Flowkwee visits farms and parks and zoos. Meanwhile, Earth gets caught up in the middle of planetary warfare and faces ruin by cosmic custard. Will all the miserable whining Earthlings and the fluffy clouds and chocolate and cheerful worms and cardboard be destroyed?
