Eeek! The Runaway Alien

More info…

“A boy, an alien and football – without any shadow of doubt it’s a match made in heaven for boys in particular and if you have a reluctant reader in the house aged from 6-9 then you just might get him or her reading as a result of EEEK!  Apart from the storyline being a real page-turner it’s also laugh-out-loud funny.”

Henry Haynes and the Great Escape

Ferdinand Fox’s Big Sleep

as the church of St Mary struck quarter past one.
His tummy was full, he was ready for sleep,
and closing his eyes he began to count sheep…”
