Sputnik’s Guide to Life on Earth

If an alien came to Earth, what would be on his to-do list? Laugh lots finding out! What’s even funnier than a brand new book by comic genius Frank Cottrell Boyce? An alien who knocks on your door and makes people think he’s a dog! When Prez answers the door to Sputnik, a small alien wearing a kilt swaggers in. And what do Prez’s foster family do? Pat his head and give him doggie-treats! Bizarre! Prez is the only one who can see that Sputnik is really an alien. Not a scary bad-guy alien. A straight-up funny guy. But what’s Sputnik doing on Earth? Unleashing chaos. Writing a guidebook. Saving the planet. And totally blowing your mind…
