Einstein's Underpants - And How They Saved the World

Written by Anthony McGowan

Einstein's Underpants - And How They Saved the World Synopsis

A stinking alien commander. Eight freaky kids. And a pair of faded Y-fronts. When crazy Uncle Otto warns of imminent invasion from outer space, his maths geek nephew Alexander takes on the task of saving the world. He recruits a ragged crew of school superheroes to help him, including Tortoise Boy, armed with Cedric the tortoise, the Human Hurricane, who possesses untold power in his bottom, and Really Annoying Girl. But with only a pack of cards, some toy ray-guns and a pair of old pants for help, can they do it? Find out in this nail-bitingly scary but hilarious story by a prize-winning author.

Einstein's Underpants - And How They Saved the World Press Reviews

It's dirty, inventive and made me laugh aloud . . . Any kid into Andy Griffiths or the Astrosaurs series will be in ecstasy -- Amanda Craig * The Times * I loved Einstein's Underpants. It strikes the perfect balance between wacky wahey pants-based fun, and a top quality, energetic sci-fi romp . . . The writing style is dramatic, punchy, and is perfectly pitched at its audience. Anthony McGowan is always excellent, and this is no exception. Highly recommended. -- Keith Dudhnath * The Bookbag * Entirely genius -- Toby Clements * Daily Telegraph * If your nine year old has not yet discovered the world of Anthony McGowan, then now might be the time -- Rachel Carlyle * Sunday Express * Einstein's Underpants is zany, irreverent and downright absurd - children will love it * Independant on Sunday *
