Oliver Fibbs: Attack of the Alien Brain

Publisher: Macmillan Children’s Books

Steve Hartley’s latest saga stars Oliver Tibbs, rechristened ‘Fibbs’ by classmates because of his habit of telling whoppers in an attempt to appear as impressive as his incredibly brainy and talented family and friends. An avid reader of comics, Oliver creates and recounts the story of his own alien experience in order to surpass the amazing weekend news of his classmates – but it soon becomes clear that it’s not aliens but his skill at storytelling that makes Oliver stand out.

Oliver is an immensely likable hero, and young readers are certain to enjoy this short, fun-filled chapter book interspersed with comic strips.
