Baby Aliens Got My Teacher!
Publisher: Nosy Crow
Izzy and her friends are confused when their teacher, Miss Jones, suddenly starts being nice to them. Instead of shouting at them and making them do maths, she gives them sweets, lets them watch films, and seems strangely happy. What is going on? Izzy soon comes to the only possible conclusion: she's been taken over by aliens, and has an evil plan to make them all into aliens too.
This wacky novel from debut author Pamela Butchart, with simple cartoon-style illustrations from Thomas Flintham, is full of fun. The bold, bright package is particularly enticing, making this a book that children will want to pick up. With quirky characters, laugh-out-loud humour and a reassuringly familiar primary school setting, it will particularly appeal to young readers with lively imaginations.
