Grass shrivelling in spite of unnaturally regular rain, the disappearance of a nature reserve warden and the bizarre message he leaves behind, all herald the arrival of Space Maggots, alien invaders infiltrating Earth through a hole in the ozone layer, and poisoning the planet through corrosive pollution. Three pupils from Chivvy Chase School and their teacher are the only ones who take the threat seriously, so they unite to track down the maggots. This good, old-fashioned school adventure story is given a modern twist by its indeterminate ending involving a police and government slip-up. A useful piece of fiction to feed into school environmental discussions and for lovers of sci-fi to read on their own.
