The Day That Aliens (Nearly) Ate Our Brains

Written by Tom McLaughlin

The Day That Aliens (Nearly) Ate Our Brains Synopsis

A laugh-a-minute, action-packed alien adventure perfect for fans of Pamela Butchart and Frank Cottrell Boyce. Best friends Freddy and Sal have accidentally intercepted a message from Alan - a spectacularly grumpy, brain-munching alien from outer space. Alan has only one message. Earth is going to be invaded in exactly ten hours' time. Soon the police, Nasa and even Presidents from around the world are getting involved - and Freddy is about to become the most famous kid on planet earth for all the wrong reasons. Wolverhampton, we have a problem.

The Day That Aliens (Nearly) Ate Our Brains Press Reviews

Brilliant funny story that my daughter loved reading, she says she can't wait for another one. * Toppsta * My son found it absolutely hilarious...definitely a laugh out loud book. * Toppsta * [...] a story packed with jokes to keep young readers entertained. * Sunday Express Magazine * The humour (the eating of brains, the effects of cheese and onion pasties on the police chief's digestive system) will appeal to many a newly confident reader and Freddy and Sal are engaging characters who try to sort out the invasion they have inadvertently started. * School Zone * In a hilarious romp that moves fast enough to keep young readers on the edge of their seats, several world presidents, a farting policeman and a very angry lollipop lady join the fight to save Earth and humanity. But who will ultimately succeed? Incidental black-and-white illustrations and plenty of alien-related activities add to the enjoyment of this brilliant first chapters book. * BookTrust *
