Third in the series. The first book, Letters from an Alien Schoolboy, was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011. It was described by Michael Rosen as “Inventive, clever, warm … a short course in learning how to laugh.” The Alien Schoolboy titles entertain on lots of different levels so parents will find themselves enjoying reading them with their kids. Buried with the sheer daft exhuberance of the plots are astute observations on human life in all its irrationality. There are also sharp one-liners, and some favourite old jokes too.
Keith, King of Threggs, spinach finder general and lord of the loonyverse, is ready to attack Earth with some very nasty baddies and an evil Thing called Mandy. Sweeties will be exploded, pets will be unravelled and knitted into hats. And that is only the start. Can Flowkwee, in his schoolboy disguise, save Earth for third time?
