Here Come the Aliens!

By Colin McNaughton

Explore planet Earth and all its secrets in rhyme.

"They come from planets near and far – Some big, some small, some quite bizarre." Moving at the speed of light and looking for a fight, the aliens are back – but this time they're coming to Earth to conquer the human race! With his zany rhymes and sidesplitting illustrations, the creator of Captain Abdul knows how to keep kids in stitches – especially when they peer into a mirror board and discover that Earth has a surprising secret weapon.

Customer reviews


'Rhythmic verses with a rousing refrain usher in an intergalactic parade of space oddities, deliciously detailed with mad staring eyeballs, warty pic'n'mix complexions and sink-plunger extremities. Inventive typography, irresistible rhymes and a surprise ending.' The Guardian

'...loud, colourful and humorous.' The Daily Telegraph
