There’s an Alien in Your Book
Tom Fletcher and Greg Abbott
Just out in paperback is the latest in the series wherein different characters invade a book and the book itself becomes part and parcel of the story-telling device.
The Fletcher/Abbott team were on to a good thing when they created that monster a couple of years back. Now in the fourth interactive extravaganza it’s the turn of a little alien and it arrives on account of its spaceship crash-landing on the first page in a cloud of smoke.
With the spacecraft appearing to be broken beyond repair, it’s up to us (adult and child together) to try and get the little creature back home where he belongs – but how?
Certainly not by pulling a scary face – that only serves to make him sob and need some TLC. Instead we can jiggle and wriggle the book in various directions
and if that isn’t successful, maybe try imagining various earth animals so our visitor knows he doesn’t belong.
Or is there perhaps an alternative solution altogether?
With bright, zany illustrations from Gregg Abbott, its themes of difference, acceptance and friendship,
this fun book is a great share with an important message that is never too early for little ones to begin to think about.
