The Day That Aliens Nearly Ate Our Brains

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Freddy and Sal just wanted to watch Wrestlegeddon Smackdown when they tried to hijack next-door’s satellite dish. How were they to know it would pinpoint the exact location of Planet Earth to Alan, the grumpiest alien in the universe?

Alan plans to invade at 10pm that very evening when he will 'kill all humans to death by eating their brains’. No time to waste then – Freddy and Sal are straight round to the police station to report the news.

In a hilarious romp that moves fast enough to keep young readers on the edge of their seats, several world presidents, a farting policeman and a very angry lollipop lady join the fight to save Earth and humanity. But who will ultimately succeed?

Incidental black-and-white illustrations and plenty of alien-related activities add to the enjoyment of this brilliant first chapters book.
