CRASH! On the first page we see a smashed rocket plunged nose down… and an excited Creature discovering the pilot earthling and claiming him, whilst his UFO-expert Dad sets about repairing the rocket. But this new alien doesn’t like Jupiter jellyfish, the offered refreshment, and is terrified by Miss Eight-Eyes, the teacher. Nor will he eat with his toes like everyone else, or moonwalk, or solar surf. There just seem to be no points of contact, so Creature says, ‘I wish you’d go home!’ at which point earthling-alien disappears. Creature, feeling remorseful, discovers him hiding in his rocket, but here they do find lots of games to play together, and both have great fun. When the rocket is announced as fit for travel, both characters are sad, but… a visit to Planet Earth is promised! The illustrations are bold, uncluttered, and expand lots of the action, highlighting the similarities more than the differences between the two main characters. Aliens become friends! With the subtitle, ‘Who’s the Alien Round Here Anyway?’ this book is sure to have great appeal.
