How would you feel if you suddenly came face to face with an alien? Tim is used to being bullied at school for all kinds of reasons but can he stand up to aliens? When Tim is kidnapped and taken to an aliens’ secret hideaway he learns the full extent of their fiendish plan and just how bad it would to be to have to live in its aftermath…Told at a cracking pace, this is an action-packed adventure rich in jokes and the unexpected.
Some seriously weird stuff is happening on Planet Earth. Pollution is cleaned up overnight. A sweet smell fills the air. Strange lights are seen in the skies...Could they possibly be UFOs? Have aliens come to fix our world? Only one boy and his dad - and possibly his goldfish - know that the truth is stranger, scarier - and a whole lot smellier...
Kidnapped and taken to a super-secret base, Tim discovers the full extent of the alien threat ...and the extraordinary kids fighting it. With the aid of a little huggy alien, and a depressed guard, Tim and his weird new friends take the battle to the aliens. Oh, and that goldfish has a big part to play...!
