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.

Flowkwee is on a mission back to the freezing, grumpy, spaceblob called earth – often referred to as the armpit of the universe. He already knows how hopeless the miserable duffers of earth blobs are but he’s back again disguised as Nigel Custard Bogey and a lot of ridiculous names besides. Earth, seen through Flowkwee’s eyes, looks as ridiculous as it is hilarious giving pause for thought at some of the things we take for granted.

Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011 and described as “a child’s version of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”. Piccadilly Press MD Brenda Gardner says, “We are delighted that Ros is on the shortlist for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. She is one of funniest writers of today, and no-one is better at pinpointing the absurd in everyday life!” This is the first in a terrific new series for 7+ year olds – both boys and girls. Packed with some hilarious illustrations and the story itself is a real page-turner. It features an alien who comes to spy on earth and in order to meld in disguises himself as a schoolboy. He thinks earthlings are very strange and having to wear clothes is almost the most strange thing of all. The story is told through a series of letters to his best friend and the story is full of humour and pace which is sure to appeal to even the most reluctant of readers.
