Blobheads

Publisher: Macmillan Children's books

Review

Ever wondered what might rise out of the toilet when you lift the lid? In Billy Barnes' case it's the Blobheads, three incompetent aliens who are looking for the High Emperor of the Universe in order to save him from the evil Followers of Sandra.

Unfortunately, they wrongly identify Billy's baby brother as the Emperor, and cause mayhem in their efforts to protect him. Readers will identify with the Blobheads' shortcomings and Billy's realisation that he actually loves his annoying brother.

A comically outrageous but thought-provoking collection of four short novels in one volume, ideal for newly fluent readers.
