Another grand adventure by Frank Cottrell Boyce that's smart, empathetic, and hilarious. I couldn't put it down!

Heartwarming book with a great pace and lots of laughs! A gentle sci-fi story for kids with big hearts & imaginations. The chapters are quite short and there's lots of dialogue to keep readers of all levels interested. Highly recommended!

This book reminds me of a kid version of "the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy" and also a longer more serious version of "everyone's a aliebn when ur a aliebn too." Cute story - love how dogs are seen as the "dominant" species on earth from an alien's perspective.
