They Came from Planet Zabalooloo!

Written by Sean Taylor

Illustrated by Kate Hindley

They Came from Planet Zabalooloo! Synopsis

We are friends on epic adventure to Planet Earth! We got space ship! YEAHHH! Look - it's got steering wheel, space biscuits and party area. OOH LA LA! From the author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise, illustrated by Jean Jullien, and the team behind Don't Call Me Choochie Pooh! comes a wildly inventive, contemporary picture book comedy about aliens. Boron, Bazoo and Zob are three extra-terrestrials on a mission. They're going to take something brilliant from Earth and bring it back to their home planet, Zabalooloo. Something like ... an enormous elephant! But this goofy, giddy trio are simply too overexcited - they're never going to catch anything if they keep wiggle-woggle dancing, taking selfies and shouting, Ooh la la! .

They Came from Planet Zabalooloo! Press Reviews

Sean Taylor's deliciously zany text, some of which is rendered through colour-coded speech bubbles, is full of utterances guaranteed to make you splutter with laughter. [...] Perfectly complementing Taylor's words are Kate Hindley's sublimely silly, intricately detailed visuals of the diminutive Zabaloolooian explorers and their tin can craft complete with steering wheel and party area, going about their mission. Human explorers of the pages will find many more small-sized things including a wealth of insects hovering on, and buzzing around, the various kinds of plants liberally scattered throughout the terrain of the aliens' hunting ground. Epic! * Red Reading Hub *
